John Mackey, who revolutionized the NFL from the tight end position and the collective bargaining table, passed away at the age of 69 early Thursday morning. He had suffered from dementia for many years and was the main inspiration behind the NFL's "88 plan" to provide financial relief for ex-players suffering through the condition.
