The 2010 football season was a strong last hurrah for Gerald "Gerry'' Huth, a starting guard on the Eagles' 1960 NFL championship team. Huth attended the Birds' 50th anniversary celebration of the franchise's most recent title last September, then was inducted into the Hall of Fame at his alma mater, Wake Forest, in November.
Huth, who passed away Friday in Las Vegas at age 77, entered the NFL with the New York Giants' 1956 championship team, when he finished third in balloting for rookie of the year. The next year, he was drafted into the Army and played service ball in Germany before returning with the Eagles in 1959. He left in the '61 expansion draft for the Minnesota Vikings, with whom he finished his career in 1963.
