R.I.P Adrian Robinson

We start off in the NFL, where we have some rather sad news to report. Adrian Robinson, a former linebacker for the Denver Broncos and Pittsburgh Steelers, has sadly passed away at the tender age of 25.

Robinson had just signed with the Hamilton Tiger-Cats as a free agent on April 27 after being released by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 2014. Robinson appeared in 12 games for the Steelers in 2012, played six times for the Broncos the following year and twice for the San Diego Chargers.

Robinson was a standout player at Temple University during his college career. Robinson recorded 156 tackles and 22.5 sacks in 50 games for The Owls. During his sophomore season, Robinson was named the Mid-American Conference defensive player of the year following a season with 14 tackles for losses and 12 sacks, in 2009.
