    This is terrible to the family that is left behind with no father or husband-something like this makes you put life in perspective and realize sports is not the most important thing in life

    Remember oh too well that leg pinning us deep in our own territory. Much respect, R.I.P
    How old was he when he retired?

    Terrible news. Way too young and the fact that he leaves behind 6 children and a wife is just horrible.

    Second best punter I ever saw ... second only to Ray Guy ... Reggie Roby had an absolute cannon

    BTW, he's also Courtney Roby's first cousin

    RIP Reggie

    He was just under 40. Don't recall the circumstances, whether he was cut and couldn't hook on, or he just decided to quit after all those years.

    He had a cannon. Jerrill Wilson from the old KC Chiefs, in the 1960's and 1970's had the best leg for a punter, ever. Booming punts. But not always the greatest hangtime, but he could get them downfield.

    Ray Guy was a close 2nd. Roby was behind him.

    Sad news. He was the best punter in the league at one point.

    How Ray Guy and Reggie Roby aren't in the Hall of Fame is beyond me.

    Remember Roby used to wear a wrist watch when he punted? Kind of stange to see that.

    And he never came off the ground when he followed through on his punts. Very distinctive style.

    It is really sad to hear of someone going so young.

    The link has been updated, giving some career and personal info, if U R interested.
    Still no word on cause of death.

    damn, man . It's a shame. It's good to hear that he led a solid personal life off the field. RIP, my man.

    Did you ever see a slow motion replay of his kicking motion????? It's unreal how high his leg got up for such a big man.

    he did have an amazing style & I don't think anyone ever accused him of being a noodlefoot do you dw?

    glad to hear you say he was a solid guy off the field. I always liked the guy a lot even though he wore a teal uniform
