Dolphins legend dies

Running back Jim Kiick, a key figure in the Miami Dolphins dynasty of the 1970s who helped the team complete the only perfect National Football League season in 1972, has died at the age of 73. The Dolphins announced Kiick’s death on Saturday, days after his daughter Allie shared on social media that her father’s health was declining rapidly. Kiick had been battling dementia and was living in an assisted-living facility in South Florida. Along with Hall of Fame fullback Larry Csonka and fellow running back Mercury Morris, Kiick was part of the greatest backfield in Dolphins history. They helped Miami go unbeaten to the Super Bowl crown in 1972 and win a second straight title the following season.
