    PITTSBURGH -- Former Pittsburgh Steelers defensive end Dwight White, part of the Steel Curtain defense that led the team to four Super Bowl championships in the 1970s, has died following surgery at a Pittsburgh hospital. He was 58.

    The team announced White's death Friday.

    Team president Art Rooney II is calling White "an important member of the Steelers family."

    Chairman Dan Rooney praised White's "relentlessness" on the field and his caring nature off it. Rooney noted White scored the team's first ever Super Bowl points in Super Bowl IX with a safety against Minnesota Vikings quarterback Fran Tarkenton.
