I only have vague recollections of Turner in a Miami Dolphin uniform. RIP.
Former Miami Dolphins defensive lineman T.J. Turner has died of complications from a stroke. He was 46.
Turner’s death was confirmed by Tims Funeral Home in Lufkin. The Lufkin Daily News said he died Monday at a Bryan, Texas, hospital after a stroke last week.
Turner played seven seasons for the Dolphins from 1986-92, compiling 16 sacks in 101 career games. He played defensive end and nose tackle.
He was an All-Southwest Conference player at Houston before the Dolphins drafted him in the third round in 1986.
