Former Nose Tackle Elliott Dies at the Age of 48

Former Saints nose tackle Tony Elliott has died at the age of 48.  He was found in his bed by a health care aide Monday.  Elliott was paralyzed in a shooting back in 2000, after he had retired from the game.  He played with the Saints from 1982 to 1988, and in those six years had 13 sacks.  He was drafted by the Saints in the fifth round out of North Texas back in 1982.
