Len Dawson, who brought the Kansas City Chiefs their first Super Bowl, entered hospice care, his wife told a local TV station. Dawson is 87 years old.

Hall of Fame quarterback Len Dawson, whose unmistakable swagger in helping the Kansas City Chiefs to their first Super Bowl title earned him the nickname “Lenny the Cool,” died. He was 87.
