The team said yesterday that Sewell died Saturday. He played 10 seasons with the Lions, one with the Los Angeles Rams and was a Rams scout for 37 seasons.
Detroit drafted Sewell in the first round out of Texas in 1953. He was a mainstay on the Lions when they won the 1953 and 1957 NFL championships. The team said he made the Pro Bowl in 1958-60 and 1963, and the Lions' 75th season All-Time Team in 2008 as a guard.-- AP
