Former Pats Punter Patrick Dies at 55

Former Pats punter Mike Patrick passed away Sunday at the age of 55. He died at his home in Biloxi, Mississippi. The cause of death has not been released. He was with the Pats from 1975 to 1978, and is fifth all-time with 8,481 yards on 225 punts in 43 career games. “I think what people would remember most about him is that he was probably the most gregarious, happy-go-lucky guy you would ever meet,” former Patriots teammate and longtime friend John Smith said. “He was the most generous man I’ve ever met and would give you the shirt off his back. He had that great Southern drawl and people were just drawn to him.”
