Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

Ernie HolmesErnie Holmes, a defensive lineman and member of the famed Steel Curtain defense for the Steelers in their dynasty years in the 1970s, died last night in a traffic accident in Texas.

Several news outlets in Texas are reporting that Mr. Holmes, 59, died after a one-vehicle crash on Highway 69 near Lumberton shortly after 9 p.m.

Mr. Holmes was part of a front four that included Joe Greene, Dwight White and L.C. Greenwood.

Mr. Holmes was a two-time All Pro drafted by the Steelers in 1971 after playing at Texas Southern. He played 81 games for the Steelers from 1972 through 1977 and finished his career with one year in New England.
