Former Lion Bob Cifers, who played with the ball club between 1944 and 1946, passed away at St. Thomas Hospital on Sunday.
Drafted out of the University of Tennessee by Detroit in '44, Cifers also spent time with the Pittsburgh Steelers and Green Bay Packers in the late 40's. He would later be inducted into the Tennessee Sports Hall of Fame for his athletic achievements.
Cifers enjoyed his most productive season as a member of the Lions in 1946, when he led the 1-10 Lions with 4 touchdowns, and tallied a 45.6 punting average on 30 punts.
Cifers was 80.
