"I am deeply saddened by the death of my friend George Plimpton," former defensive tackle Alex Karras said in a statement. "And I am very grateful that we were able to share the Paper Lions' reunion last weekend as co-captains of the Detroit Lions.
"George was a 'gentleman' in the truest sense of the word -- loyal, funny, a good friend.
"He was my hero and I will miss him."
