Chuck Weber has not been an active member of the NFL family since 1985, but that does not diminish his impact on the league, as well as the Philadelphia Eagles, Cleveland Browns and Arizona (formerly Chicago) Cardinals organizations. On Monday, however, the seven-year NFL veteran and NFL champion passed away and the Eagles organization announced his passing while mourning the loss in an official capacity and on Twitter:
Weber died at the age of 87 on Sunday and he leaves behind five children (four sons and one daughter), 13 grandchildren and three great-greatchildren after a long and memorable life. He was most recently involved in the NFL as a coach for more than two decades, spending time on the sidelines for the Patriots, Chargers, Bengals, Cardinals, Browns, Colts and Chargers organizations from 1964 through 1985.
Prior to that, though, he was on the Eagles team that claimed the 1960 NFL title and Weber produced six interceptions over the course of that season. His early career was spent with the Browns and Cardinals but Weber is likely best known for his three-year stint in Philadelphia and it is easy to see the impact he made on the franchise.
The NFL world lost a titan over the weekend and his friends and family will be in our thoughts and prayers.
