Len Dawson, a Super Bowl champion and Hall of Fame quarterback who spent most of his career with the Kansas City Chiefs, has died.
He was 87.
“My family and I are heartbroken,” Chiefs Chairman and CEO Clark Hunt said in a statement Wednesday.
“Len Dawson is synonymous with the Kansas City Chiefs. Len embraced and came to embody Kansas City and the people that call it home. You would be hard-pressed to find a player who had a bigger impact in shaping the organization as we know it today than Len Dawson did.”
Dawson won Super Bowl IV with the Chiefs and was named the game’s Most Valuable Player.
