Hall of Fame defensive back Jack Butler died on Saturday after a battle with a staph infection. He was 85.

Butler had the infection since November, which stemmed from a knee replacement that was needed because of a leg injury that ended his career in 1959.

Butler, a Steelers great in the 1950s, was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2012.

He was part of the NFL's All-Decade Team of the 1950s. When he retired, he was second on the league's all-time list with 52 interceptions.

After his playing days, Butler was a long-time scout.

"Jack Butler was one of the all-time great Steelers," Steelers president Art Rooney II said in a statement.
