    Bob Buczkowski, who played briefly in the NFL about 30 years ago, died recently at age 54. Cause of death has yet to be announced; howver it appears that foul play was not involved, and Buczkowski had several concurrent health issues.

    He was drafted #1 by the Raiders in 1986, but only played 2 games for them in 1987 before being released. He later played with Phoenix (1989) and Cleveland (1990)
