DALLAS (AP) -- Pat Summerall, the NFL player-turned-broadcaster whose deep, resonant voice called games for more than 40 years, has died at the age of 82.

Fox Sports spokesman Dan Bell said Tuesday that Summerall had died. He could not immediately provide further details.  

Summerall was part of network television broadcasts for 16 Super Bowls. His last championship game was for Fox on Feb. 3, 2002, also his last game with longtime partner John Madden. The popular duo worked together for 21 years, moving to Fox in 1994 after years as the lead team for CBS.  

Summerall played 10 NFL seasons (1952-61) with the Chicago Cardinals and New York Giants.    He started doing NFL games for CBS in 1964. He also covered the PGA Tour and tennis.
