Former New England Patriots wide receiver and three-time Super Bowl champion David Patten died Thursday, he was 47 years old.

According to an ESPN report, Patten was killed in a motorcycle crash outside of Columbia, South Carolina, according to Richland County  Coroner Naida Rutherford.

The crash currently remains under investigation by the South Carolina highway patrol and the coroner.

Both Patriots Chairman and CEO Robert Kraft and Bill Belichick each issued statements on Friday remembering Patten and his lasting impact on the franchise.

Over his NFL career, Patten played for five teams across 12 seasons but put together his best and most memorable years as a Patriot from 2001-2004 during the first era of the dynasty.

Patten played in 54 regular season games with 44 starts for the Patriots and also played in six postseasons games with three starts during his New England tenure. He caught 165 passes for 2,513 yards and 16 touchdowns in the regular season and added 15 receptions for 174 yards with two touchdowns in the postseason for the Patriots, helping the team win its first three Super Bowls.
