Cortez Kennedy, a Mississippi County, Ark., native who became an NFL Hall of Famer after 11 years as a defensive tackle, was found dead today in Orlando, Fla., at age 48. Cause is unknown, but Orlando police told TMZ there was nothing suspicious about the death.

The Encyclopedia of Arkansas History has a good biography on Kennedy, who returned to Wilson, the small town where he grew up, for a time after his pro career ended. He moved to Orlando with his daughter in 2012.
