Dennis Morgan, who played for the Dallas Cowboys and Philadelphia Eagles, died Sunday after suffering a heart attack at MetLife Stadium during the Cowboys' game against the New York Giants. He was 63.
New Jersey State Police told the Associated Press that Morgan went into cardiac arrest at the game and was taken to a local hospital, where he was later pronounced dead.
Morgan played with the Cowboys in 1974 under Hall of Fame Coach Tom Landry, though the team failed to reach the playoffs. He retired after spending the 1975 season with the Eagles.
Over two seasons, Morgan appeared in 17 games as a kick returner.
