    Former NFL lineman Mitch Petrus dies of heat stroke at age 32

    Posted by Michael David Smith on July 19, 2019, 9:54 AM EDT

    Mitch Petrus, an offensive lineman who spent time with the Giants, Patriots and Titans, has died at the age of 32.

    Petrus had been working all day outside at his family’s business in Lonoke County, Arkansas, and died of heat stroke, the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette reports. A heat advisory has been in effect in Central Arkansas, with temperatures in the 90s and high humidity.

    Born and raised in Carlisle, Arkansas, Petrus began his college football career as a walk-on tight end and fullback who wasn’t expected to see any playing time for the Arkansas Razorbacks. But after bulking up and moving to guard, Petrus was named first-team All-SEC in 2009.

    The Giants took Petrus in the fifth round of the 2010 NFL draft, and he earned a Super Bowl ring with the Giants after the 2011 season. The Giants cut him in 2012 and he played briefly for the Patriots and Titans after that.
    Steeler teams featuring stat-driven, me-first, fantasy-football-darling diva types such as Antonio Brown & Le'Veon Bell won no championships.

    Super Bowl winning Steeler teams were built around a dynamic, in-your-face defense plus blue-collar, hard-hitting, no-nonsense football players on offense such as Hines Ward & Jerome Bettis.

    We don't want Juju & Conner to replace what we lost in Brown & Bell.

    We are counting on Juju & Conner to return us to the glory we once had with Hines & The Bus.
