Gil Santos Kyle Okposo Jersey , the New England Patriots' longtime radio voice, died Thursday on his 80th birthday and 57th wedding anniversary.

Son Mark Santos confirmed the death to The Boston Globe. He said the cause of death wasn't immediately clear to the family.

Santos started working Patriots' broadcasts games for WBZ in 1966 as a color analyst. He took over play-by-play duties when the team moved to Foxborough in 1971. WBZ lost the team's broadcast rights in the 1980s, and Santos returned with the station in 1991 and remained a fixture through the 2012 season.

Santos called 743 games in 36 seasons, and also did many Boston College football games. He retired from WBZ in 2009 after 38 years as a sports anchor Corey Linsley Jersey , and was inducted into the Massachusetts Broadcasters Hall of Fame that year. In 2013, he went into the Patriots Hall of Fame.

"It was my privilege to honor Gil with his induction into the Patriots Hall of Fame in 2013," Patriots Chairman and CEO Robert Kraft said in a team statement. "His legacy and most memorable calls will live there for future generations of Patriots fans to enjoy."

Santos was born in Acushnet and grew up in Fairhaven. He attended Southeastern Massachusetts University, served in the U.S. Army in Vietnam and graduated from the New England Broadcast School.

In addition to his son Geronimo Allison Jersey , Santos is survived by wife Roberta, daughter Kathleen and two grandchildren.

DeMarco Murray was the Titans’ feature back the past two years. He got most of the touches out of the backfield, averaging just over 18 per game in the 31 games he played for the Titans.

With the release of Murray, it was presumed Derrick Henry would take over Murray’s role.

But the Titans also have Dion Lewis.

Terry McCormick of titaninsider.com reports Henry could lead the Titans in rushing attempts and rushing yards Adidas Vincent Trocheck Jersey , but Lewis could end up with more all-purpose yards. While Henry will start, the Titans likely have game-day packages for each back, and the two could line up in the backfield together at times.

That follows what offensive coordinator Matt LaFleur said this offseason in calling Henry and Lewis “1A and 1B.”

Lewis gained 1,110 yards from scrimmage last season for New England and scored 10 total touchdowns. Henry had 176 carries for 744 yards and five touchdowns but caught only 11 passes for 136 yards and a touchdown.

David Fluellen will battle undrafted rookies Akrum Wadley and Dalvin Dawkins for the third running back spot. The Titans remain without a true fullback after parting ways with Jalston Fowler last year.
