The news sent shock waves throughout the sporting world.

Muhammad Ali tragically passed away this past Friday, June 3rd at the age of 74.

Ali was one of the most iconic figures that the world of sports has ever seen.

His catchphrase ‘float like a butterfly, sting like a bee’ is one of the most well-known catchphrases from any professional sports athlete in history.

Countless people were saddened by the passing of Ali, including some of our very own Detroit Lions. Some of the guys took to their Twitter/Instagram accounts to pay tribute to the self-proclaimed ‘Greatest of All-Time’.
