KNOXVILLE, Tenn. —

Dick Evey (EE'-vee), a tackle who played most of his eight seasons in the NFL with the Chicago Bears, has died at age 72.

Evey played from 1964-69 with the Bears, who selected him out of Tennessee in the first round of the 1964 draft. Evey played with the Los Angeles Rams in 1970 and the Detroit Lions in 1971.
