Greenwood was one of the original members of the four-man defensive front nicknamed the Steel Curtain, which led the team to four Super Bowl victories from 1975 to 1980.
Ernie Holmes and Dwight White were other members of the feared foursome who died previously. Only Hall of Famer “Mean” Joe Greene remains from the group.
Greenwood earned four Super Bowl rings while playing for the Steelers from 1969 to 1981. He was 67.
