Well no news has been released yet about it other than that this morning Bears newly acquired DE Gaines Adams died this morning. The Bears just got him in a trade from Tampa Bay a few weeks back for a 2nd round draft pick.

I'm not a Bears fan at all, but that's awful. Only 26? Wow.

I don't know much about football, but my mom is the biggest Bears fan on the planet, so I think she's gonna be pretty shocked over this.

Wow.... I'm 26. It would be so messed up if I died that young. Wonder if drugs had a part in it.

Supplementary article from FoxSports. As a Bears fan, I'm saddened by the death, but I also have a question. Gaines played what... maybe 2 games this year for the Bears after he was traded? Granted these were only for a few snaps, do we get any form of compensation for having traded a high draft pick and then the player dying? I don't want to sound cold or anything, but I'm genuinely intrigued.

I'm not sure how many of you were still interested after the whole MILF thing, but knowing CAG, I'm sure it's a lot of you.

Nope, no compensation. Think of it like if he had a career ending injury in one of those 2 games.

wow, instead of worrying about if he had kids/family and his death you care more about your crappy team.

RIP... 26 is way too young, especially for an athlete in peak condition during the prime of their lives.

Fuck! My fantasy football!

This is really sad. Mr. Adams was only 26... Condolences to his family, and R.I.P.

I'll be 26 this year, so someone dying at that age scares me. It just goes to show that we should appreciate every day we are given.

Seems like it was cardiac arrest because of an enlarged heart. toxicology results are still being processed, but it doesn't look like drug use was an issue.

Thanks for the info RvB. I had no idea what the procedure was or if there was any. Don't get me wrong, I feel for his family and their loss, but at the same time, I'm naturally curious since this (thankfully) isn't a regularly occurring thing.

Such a shame...

Used to think of NFL players as old people when I'd watch games as a kid. Kinda eye opening to see that he was only 4 years older than me and his life is already over.

Agreed, I felt the same way when Chris Henry died. On the one hand these guys were living the dream but their lives were cut so damn short.

I live in Michigan. If the entire Lions team died, they'd still have the same record.
