    Bears player Gaines Adams, 26, is dead, according to a report by the Greenville News of South Carolina.

    Adams, a former Clemson University football star, died Sunday morning after he was taken to the Emergency Room at Self Regional in Greenwood, County Coroner James T. Coursey told the Greensville News.

    Adams, a defensive end, was the fourth player chosen in the 2007 National Football League draft by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

    He was traded from Tampa Bay to the Chicago Bears in October. An autopsy will be performed today by a forensic pathologist.

    My dad got to enjoy 3 Reds World Championships by the time he was my age. So far, I've only gotten to enjoy one. Step it up Redlegs!

    Sad news. He was such a beast at Clemson. But I heard he died of a heart attack...at the age of 26 though? Needless to say, the autopsy should help clear up the situation.
    That hit was plenty fair. Atleast by a quarter of an inch.

    It's possible.

    A 25 year old died of a heart attack where I used to work. Fit guy, ate healthy, exercised a lot. Laid down to take a nap one day, and didn't walk up. Massive heart attack.
