Ex-punter Dave Jennings dies at 61

Dave Jennings, perhaps the New York Giants' best punter ever, died on Wednesday morning after a long bout with Parkinson's disease.

Jennings, who turned 61 on June 8, had suffered from Parkinson's since 1996.

Jennings also played for the New York Jets. He was a four-time Pro Bowler with the Giants from 1974-84 and owns the franchise records for punts (931) and yards (38,792). Jennings punted for 4,000 yards or more in a season from 1979-81 and recorded a career-best 44.8-yard average in 1980.

He was a really good punter...I thought (I was just a little kid at the time) that he was the best punter of his time, and second just to Ray Guy...but he played on some horrible Giants teams...
