Gaines Adams, defensive end for the Chicago Bears, was taken to a South Carolina emergency room on Sunday morning. He was pronounced dead at 9am ET. Details of the cause have not been released yet. Our prayers and well wishes go out to his family and friends. Rest in peace my friend.
It sure does make my heart drop everytime I see such a young talent leave us before their time.
