Lamb, Fins' first Miami native and once dealt for Little, passes

DAVIE, Fla. -- Former defensive back Mack Lamb, the first Miami native to play for the Dolphins, has died. He was 66.

Mount Sinai Missionary Baptist Church, which is handling funeral arrangements, confirmed Lamb's death Wednesday. No cause was given.

Lamb attended Tennessee State before signing as a free agent with the Dolphins in 1967. He appeared in 15 games over two seasons before being traded away for eventual Pro Football Hall of Fame guard Larry Little. The two were teammates at Miami's Booker T. Washington High School.

The funeral is scheduled for Saturday in Miami.
