Walt Sweeney, a Chargers Hall of Fame offensive lineman who played in the 1960s and 1970s, has died at 71 of pancreatic cancer.

Sweeney was a second-round pick out of Syracuse in the 1963 AFL Draft.

He spent 11 seasons with the San Diego Chargers and then two with the Redskins.

Another Chargers great that will be missed.
