“It’s a tough question,” Hall of Famer linebacker Ray Lewis said. “I love Goose like a brother. From the first day we met, I realized that life is different. I knew he was the one who would change my life forever. He was a one of a kind person who made you feel important and special. You can never replace such a man. On the field, he was the best opponent who brought out the best in each of us. We should never put off until tomorrow what we can do today. Hug your loved ones for the Goose.”

Defenseman Sam Adams, who played alongside Syragusa in the center of the Ravens’ defensive line, said: “It was an honor and a privilege to line up alongside Tony Syragusa. He made the game fun and was a real contender. Our D-line room was very special on and off the pitch. May he rest in peace and may God bless and keep his family.”

Hall of Famer Rod Woodson said: “Tony has always been the life of the party. I know that he loved his family and friends. My feelings are now overwhelmed with grief for his family.”

Ravens kicker Matt Stover said: “I’m sorry to lose such a great teammate and friend. I truly believe the Super Bowl XXXV team would never have been this good without Tony. Not only did he shut up the middle, but his presence in the dressing room created a relaxed atmosphere when things weren’t going well. He will be missed, but not forgotten.”
