Patriots great Babe Parilli dies at 87

A former New England Patriots quarterback and member of the Patriots Hall of Fame has died, the team announced Saturday. He played in 94 games for the Patriots from 1961-67 throwing for over 16,747 yards and 132 touchdown passes (which places him at fourth all-time with the team for both).

The fourth overall pick in the 1952 NFL draft, Parilli bounced around six franchises (five in the AFL/NFL and one in the CFL) during a career that spanned almost two decades.

Parilli broke the SEC single-season record for passing yards when he threw for 1,627 in 1950, and he broke it again in 1951 when he threw for 1,643.
