"We are all devastated to hear the news of Frank's passing. He was loved by so many, and his memory will always be cherished.
Frank's name was synonymous with Titans football. He was such a huge part of our team's success both on and off the field. He embraced this community and fan base immediately, and everyone loved him right back.
On the field he always seemed to be open and making key plays – he was even part of a Miracle. He worked to become one of the greatest NFL tight ends of his era, evidenced by his three Pro Bowl appearances. Off the field he was as approachable as anyone could ever be. Following his playing career, he continued his connection with our fans and community through his radio career, and his voice became one of the most recognizable in Middle Tennessee.
His on field work and accomplishments rightfully led to his induction in our Ring of Honor, cementing his legacy in our team's lore.
We offer our prayers and condolences for Frank's family. Our football family mourns with you."
