Former Dolphins TE and broadcaster Jim Mandich died Tuesday night at the age of 62 after a bout with cancer.
Mandich played for the Dolphins from 1970-1977 and was a member of two Super Bowl winning teams. He finished his Dolphins career with 121 receptions for 1,406 yards and 23 touchdowns.
Mandich spent 17 years as part of the Dolphins' broadcast team, working as a color commentator and radio host on WQAM in Miami.
"There will never be another Jim Mandich," said Miami Dolphins owner Stephen Ross. "He was universally beloved by all members of the Dolphins family during his self-described forty year 'love affair' with the organization. His passion for this team and this community will forever live on among the generations of Dolphins fans who watched and listened to him."
