Patriots great Babe Parilli dies at 87

Vito “Babe” Parilli, a member of the Patriots’ Hall of Fame and one of the greatest quarterbacks in the history of the American Football League, has died at the age of 87. An All-American and two-time Heisman Trophy finalist while playing for Bear Bryant at Kentucky in 1950 and 1951, Parilli was one of the greatest players ever to play for the Wildcats and is a member of the College Football Hall of Fame. The Packers made Parilli the fourth overall pick of the 1952 NFL draft, but he lasted just two seasons in Green Bay before heading north and playing for the Ottawa Rough Riders of the Canadian Football League.
