Pro Football Hall of Famer Merlin Olsen dies at 69

Merlin Olsen of the L.A. Rams models the jersey he'll be wearing for the AFC-NFC Pro Bowl game to be played in Dallas, Irving, Texas, Jan. 15, 1973. The only problem is the spelling; the jersey was originally for Bob Lilly of the Dallas Cowboys but Lilly will miss the game due to back trouble. (Ferd Kaufman)
