Former NFL linebacker Adrian Robinson has died at age 25.
No cause of death is known at this time.
He played in 18 career games with three tackles.
The Harrisburg, Pa., native went undrafted out of Temple.
He signed with the Pittsburgh Steelers and played for them along with the Philadelphia Eagles, Denver Broncos, San Diego Chargers and Washington Redskins.
Robinson was traded from Pittsburgh to Philadelphia in a 2013 deal for veteran running back Felix Jones. He was released a month later by the Eagles. Robinson signed with the Canadian Football League's Hamilton Tiger-Cats in April.
Robinson was an All-Mid-American Conference selection at Temple and named Defensive Player of the year. He had 13 sacks as a sophomore.
Robinson's agency, Symmetry Reps, wrote a note of condolence.
"It deeply saddens all of us to share with you that Adrian Robinson Jr. passed away last night at the age of 25," the note said. "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."
