Concern around the football world with news Hall of Fame quarterback Len Dawson, who led the Kansas City Chiefs to victory in Super Bowl IV, is in hospice care.

Dawson, now 87, played 14 seasons for the Dallas Texans/Kansas City Chiefs from 1962-75. He was 93-56-8 as a starter and threw for 28,507 yards with the franchise.

Dawson owned the Chiefs' single-season passing touchdown record, which he set in 1964 with 30 touchdowns in only 14 games, a record that stood until 2018 when Patrick Mahomes broke it in 10 games. He still owns the Chiefs' career passing yards, touchdowns, and wins.

Prior to his time with Dallas/KC, Dawson spent time in the NFL with the Steelers and Browns.

After retiring he had a long career on television in Kansas City.

Dawson was elected to the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 1987, and in 2012 he won the Hall's Pete Rozelle Radio-Television Award.
