The Pittsburgh Steelers are currently facing off against the Minnesota Vikings in London as they fight to earn their first win of the regular season, but stateside an important member of the team’s family has passed away. According to reports, legendary Steelers defensive end L.C. Greenwood has passed away due to what is being considered natural cause.

From Bill Phillips of WPXI:

Greenwood was with the team from 1969 to 1981, where he became a dominant force as a member of the “Steel Curtain” defense and a member of the NFL’s A’ll-Decade team in the 70′s.
