NFL veteran dies at 79

This week's NFL losses are too many. The Military Bowl Foundation revealed Brig Owens' death Tuesday.

Owens was a seventh-round selection of the Dallas Cowboys in 1965 after staring at quarterback for Cincinnati.

He was moved to Washington after a year without playing for Dallas. Owens' change of location led to a long NFL career.

He played 12 seasons in Washington and is second behind Darrell Green in interceptions.

Owens and tight end Jerry Smith became the NFL's first interracial roommates in 1966 for training camp and away games.

Owens was admitted into Cincinnati's HOF in 1979 and then attended law school.
In 2012, he was designated one of Washington's 80 best players.
