Former DL Turner Dies At 46

A former defensive lineman for the Miami Dolphins passed away Monday as confirmed by Tims Funeral Home, the funeral home of record, located in Lufkin, TX. T.J. Turner died from complications from a stroke which took place last week.

Turner played seven seasons for the Dolphins (1986-92), recording 16 sacks in 101 career games, playing defensive end and nose tackle. He was an All-Southwest Conference player at Houston before the Dolphins drafted him in the third round of the 1986 NFL draft. All of us here at NFL Gridiron Gab offer our most sincere condolences to Turner’s immediate family.
