Mitch Frerotte, an offensive lineman who played four seasons and appeared in three Super Bowls for the Buffalo Bills, has died. He was 43.

Frerotte played 58 games for the Bills in 1987 and the Super Bowl seasons of 1990-1992, mostly as a reserve and special teams member.

The Snyder-Crissman Funeral Home in Frerotte's home town of Kittanning confirms the death, but says funeral arrangements remain incomplete. Frerotte died unexpectedly at home, and a cause of death was not immediately available.

Frerotte played for Penn State from 1983 to 1987 before signing with the Bills. He suffered a career-ending neck injury after joining the Seattle Seahawks for training camp in 1983.
