Denver Bronco (former) LB Adrian Robinson dead at 25, reasons not reported. Sounds like suicide or overdose--I almost put this entry there.

Coroner's Office in Phily confirming that he hung himself Saturday. Shoulda posted in suicide thread as per my intuition.

Seattle Seahawk Jesse Williams has cancer.
"[T]he Seahawks announced the man better known as Tha Monstar had been diagnosed with type 2 papillary kidney cancer and would need surgery."
Damned Aussies.

Garo Yepremian, kicker for the Miami Dolphins, especially during their 17-0 season, dies at 70. https://uk.news.yaho...pt.html#a8TbMxx

 

However he will be remembered for almost costing them the Superbowl (he didn't): http://www.nfl.com/v...al-interception

Don Looney of the Pittsburgh Steelers--former record holder in receptions--dead at 98. He had to be about the oldest NFL player around .

That does seem like a shocking age for NFL until you remember he's from the pre-roid days.

You ever seen the episode of The Simpsons where they go to the Superbowl? ("Sunday Cruddy Sunday") There's a great gag along those lines.

Also, love the guy's name...

Former Miami Dolphins' quarterback, the unfortunately named Dick Wood, dies at 79. http://www.miamidolp...c1-bff020d1dfde


Was going to say Dick Wood has gone limp, but rigor mortis would actually make for a stiff Dick Wood? I shoulda watched more episodes of Six Feet Under...

Unfortunately?  Sounds like a nice manly name to me.  Even better is the Jets owner, Woody Johnson.
