“It’s tough,” Hall of Fame player Ray Lewis said. “I love Goose like a brother. From the first day we met, I knew life was different. I knew he was someone who would change my life forever. He was such a unique person who made you feel important and special. You could never replace a man like this.” On the field, he was the ultimate competitor who brought out the best in all of us. We shouldn’t put off tomorrow what we can do today. Hug your loved ones for a goose.”
Said defensive back Sam Adams, who played alongside Siragoza in the Ravens’ midfield, interjected, “It was an honor and a privilege to line up next to Tony Siragoza. He made the game fun and he was a real competitor. Our D-line room was private on and off the field. Have mercy. God bless God and his family.”
Hall of Fame defensive linebacker Rod Woodson said, “Tony has always been the life of the party. I know he loved his family and friends. My feelings are now overwhelmed by grief for his family.”
Ravens Kicker Matt Stover said, “I’m sorry for losing a great teammate and friend. I really think Super Bowl XXXV wouldn’t have been as good as it would have been without Tony.
