Over 11 seasons in the NFL, former New England Patriots linebacker Andre Tippett was one of the game’s premiere linebackers.
During his Foxboro tenure, Tippett earned five Pro Bowl invites, two first team All-Pro honors, and a spot on the 1980’s All Decade Team.
In 151 career games, Tippett collected 100.0 sacks, a Patriots franchise record that stands to this day and for his efforts, Tippett earned spots in both the Patriots and Pro Football Hall of Fame’s.
On Friday, the Patriots shared some throwback mic’d up sound bites featuring Tippett over Twitter.
Check out the vintage footage from a 1987 episode of “This Is The NFL” featuring famed broadcaster Harry Kalas below.
