Ex-NFL Player, Adrian Robinson, Commits Suicide At 25
…the organization that in the past eight years had three players die before their 25th birthday: Cornerback Darrent Williams, running back Damien Nash and receiver Kenny McKinley.
Prior to his brief stint in Washington, the late linebacker played for the San Diego Chargers, the Denver Broncos, and the Pittsburgh Steelers. He was also a star athlete at Temple University in Philadelphia, Pa.
Temple head coach Matt Rhule mourned Robinson’s death in a statement posted to the team’s Twitter page late Sunday night.
“The Temple football program lost a friend, a brother, and a wonderful young man today,” Rhule said. “Adrian Robinson was one of the greatest competitors I ever had the pleasure of coaching and I know he was an even better teammate. I first met Adrian as an 18-year-old high school senior. I was so proud to see him back at Temple this spring finishing his degree and being a loving father to his new daughter.”
