Tommy McDonald (84)

July 26, 1934 - September 24, 2018 

Hall of Fame receiver for the Philadelphia Eagles, Tommy McDonald, has died at 84.

His death was announced Monday by the Pro Football Hall of Fame. Details were not disclosed.

McDonald was the small, speedy and sure-handed receiver who teamed with quarterback Norm Van Brocklin to help the Philadelphia Eagles win the 1960 NFL championship.

McDonald was a two-time All-American for Oklahoma. He played 12 seasons for NFL five teams and was a six-time Pro Bowl selection. When he retired in 1968, he ranked second in league history in touchdown catches, fourth in yards receiving and sixth in receptions.

The 5-foot-7, 175-pound McDonald had to wait 30 years before becoming the smallest player inducted into the Hall
