On Monday, former New England Patriots tight end Willie Scott and linebacker Marty Schottenheimer each passed away following health complications.

Scott played in 25 games with two starts for the Patriots during his three seasons (1986-88) and caught 14 passes for 84 yards and one touchdown.

Also on Monday, news of Marty Schottenheimer’s passing made its way around the NFL community following complications from Alzheimer’s disease. He was 77 years old.

Although he was best known as an NFL head coach for 21 seasons across four NFL teams, Schottenheimer additionally played six seasons in the NFL, including the 1969-70 seasons with the Patriots after four seasons with the Buffalo Bills. He played in 23 games with the Patriots with five starts.

Schottenheimer coached the Cleveland Browns (1984-88), Kansas City Chiefs (1989-98), Washington Redskins (2001) and San Diego Chargers (2002-06).

Following his dismissal from the San Diego Chargers in 2007, Schottenheimer’s coaching career concluded with 205 career total victories, with his 200 regular season wins placing him seventh on the all-time list.
