He was famous for drinking away his signing bonus when he signed his first pro contract. A notorious carouser.

Can't imagine an undrafted free agent would get much of a signing bonus, but in any case, that was 30 years ago. Latest video I can find is a 2013 commercial and he doesn't seem overly obese or unhealthy in it. No real stories of carousing in a Google search.

I had to chuckle at his old quote I read in the newspaper this morning.....

"If I wanted to learn a school song, I would have gone to Notre Dame or Penn State.  I wanted to kill people on the football field.  That is why I went to Pitt."

What a personality.....the Goose was a legend.
