Former Pittsburgh Steelers, San Diego Chargers, Denver Broncos and Washington Redskins player, Adrian Robinson, passed away on Saturday. He was 25 years old.
The details around the former NFL linebackers death are scarce. The case of death was not given.
Symmetry, the agency that represented Robinson, stated on Facebook, “It deeply saddens all of us to share with you that Adrian Robinson Jr. passed away last night at the age of 25. Adrian was a beloved father, son, brother, friend and teammate. We ask that you please respect his family’s privacy during this difficult time, and especially keep his daughter Avery Marie in your prayers. Thank you for all of your support and consideration.”
Temple head coach Matt Rhule released a statement via the Owls’ twitter account, “The Temple football program lost a friend, a brother, and a wonderful young man today. 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.”
The former Temple player played four seasons for the Owls.
“Robinson went undrafted in 2011 and signed with the Pittsburgh Steelers. He played in 12 games as a rookie. The Steelers traded him to the Philadelphia Eagles in exchange for Felix Jones before the start of the 2013 season. Robinson was released a week later and signed with the Denver Broncos,” reported Sports Illustrated.
Adrian didn’t play in 2014, but he was ready to start his CFL career.
Pro Football Talk reported, “Robinson recently signed with the Hamilton Tiger-Cats of the CFL, which opens training camp later this month.”
