    Former University of Alabama quarterback and Oakland Raiders great Kenny Stabler has passed away at the age of 69, The Tuscaloosa News has learned.

    From Foley, where he starred at Foley High School, Stabler played for three seasons (1965-67) under legendary Alabama coach Paul W. "Bear" Bryant before becoming a second-round selection in the 1968 NFL Draft by Oakland.

    Stabler led the Raiders to the 1977 Super Bowl title. He was a four-time Pro Bowl selection.

    More information to follow.

    Was just about to create a thread. He was a helluva QB...great 'face of the franchise'...especially in those days. A shame he didn't get into the HOF before he passed. RIP Snake.

    Preparing to report on an unconfirmed but wide and persistent rumor that former Alabama football player Kenny Stabler had died, tuscaloosanews.com inadvertently and briefly published an incomplete story that we were preparing in the event that the story was confirmed. At this time, it is not confirmed. Unfortunately, other news outlets used social media to share the report. We regret the error and any emotional distress caused to Stabler’s family, friends and fans.

    I'm guessing this gets filed under "if there's smoke there's fire"...

    Big bummer.

    NBC affiliate (WPMI) in Tuscaloosa is reporting that Stabler has passed away, and it is citing president of Kenny Stabler Foundation.

    No one has said he's changing positions, and we haven't added a SAM LB, so I'll assume he's still going to be a LB in the base defense. No reason to assume otherwise.
