Former New York Jets player dies in fishing accident
Pete Lammons, 77, played six seasons for the Jets, including Super Bowl III, according to a statement posted on the team’s website.
Lammons fell overboard from a boat Thursday morning while competing in the Toyota Series event at Sam Rayburn Reservoir in Brookeland, Texas, Major League Fishing said in a statement on its website Web. He was an “experienced co-fisherman” and had competed in 57 MLF tournaments, the statement said.

His family will donate his Super Bowl ring and his 1963 National Championship ring from the University of Texas to Jacksonville High School in Texas, where he graduated, his nephew Lance Lammons told CNN.

“These were Pete’s wishes and we are delighted that the community he grew up in could be inspired by viewing these special items,” said Lance Lammons. “We are also bringing together many of his ancient relics to accompany the rings to keep a very special legacy alive forever.”

An autopsy will be performed to determine Lammons’ cause of death, TPWD said.
