Gaines Adams Of The Chicago Bears Dead At 26; Dies From Cardiac Arrest

I’m sad to report that another young NFL player has lost his life. Gaines Adams, defensive back for the Chicago Bears, died from what seems like cardiac arrest. He was pronounced dead at Self Regional Healthcare in Greenwood, South  Carolina. He is believed to have had a heart attack during the middle of the night while asleep, due to a complication from an enlarge heart. As for now, the reason for death is listed as cardiac arrest with more details to follow.

After amassing 28 career sacks at Clemson, Adams was selected fourth overall in the 2007 NFL Draft by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. He logged 83 tackles and 12.5 sacks in three seasons with the Bucs before being traded to the Chicago Bears in October of 2009. {Source}
