Former Rams RB Cullen Bryant Dead at 58

Former Rams RB Cullen Bryant has passed away at the age of 58:

Cullen Bryant, a mainstay of the Los Angeles Rams for 11 seasons and a running back on their 1980 Super Bowl team, has died of natural causes, family members said Thursday. He was 58. Listed at 6 feet 1 and 234 pounds, Bryant was stronger than most tailbacks of his era, and he was the biggest player of his time to regularly return punts and kickoffs. “When Cullen hits those holes, nobody wants to stick their nose in there,” teammate Jack Youngblood told the Los Angeles Times in 1979. “Those little 180-pound (defensive backs) just jump on his back when he runs by.”
