Tom Dempsey, legendary NFL kicker, dead after coronavirus bout at age 73..Dempsey, who was born without toes on his right foot and without fingers on his right hand, wore a specially made shoe during his NFL career.His history-making kick for the New Orleans Saints against the Detroit Lions broke the previous NFL record by seven yards. It has since been matched by five kickers – and broken only by Matt Prater of the Denver Broncos, who kicked a 64-yarder in 2013.At the time, Dempsey’s kick helped gain publicity for the Saints, who were then an expansion club playing in only their fourth season.https://www.foxnews.com/sports/tom-demp ... -at-age-73
