HUNTERSVILLE, N.C., Dec. 26 (UPI) -- Reggie White, who died Sunday at his Huntersville, N.C., home, was praised by players, coaches and others as one of the great players in NFL history.

"Reggie White was the greatest defensive end of all time, but as great as he was on the field he was that much greater off the field," former teammate Mike Golic said on ESPN's Sunday NFL Countdown.

Philadelphia Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie called White "one of the greatest men ever to play the game of football."

NFL Commissioner Paul Tagliabue said White would be "remembered as one of the greatest defensive players in NFL history."

"He is a Hall of Fame player and possibly the best defensive lineman ever to play the game," said George Seifert, White's coach at Carolina.

White played for Philadelphia, Green Bay and Carolina in a 15-year NFL career.
