Former Buffalo Bills offensive lineman and Bills legend Conrad Dobler died Monday at the age of 72. Dobler played in the NFL from 1972-1981 and was a 3-time Pro Bowler during that span.

A fifth-round pick out of the University of Wyoming in the 1972 NFL Draft, Dobler was selected by the St. Louis Cardinals and played there for six seasons. He went on to play with the New Orleans Saints for two seasons and then finished his career in Buffalo, playing the 1980-81 seasons as a Bill.

"Conrad was great to be around. He had something going on all the time in the locker room. He would give you the shirt off his back if you needed it," Bills Wall of Fame QB Joe Ferguson said. "The team and coaches loved him. Sad day for the NFL."
