Former Bears defensive lineman Bryan Robinson dead at age 41

Former Chicago Bear, Bryan Robinson was found dead Saturday in a Milwaukee Hotel.

The Toledo, Ohio, native was pronounced dead at 10:17 p.m. after being found at the Midpoint Motel.

The 41-year-old - who played for the Bears, Cardinals, Rams, Bengals and Dolphins - was a solid National Football League player. The Milwaukee County Medical Examiners Office is continuing to investigate Robinsons death, and autopsy results are scheduled to be released Monday.Robinson played in 207 games during his career, starting 170 of them and recording 24 career sacks.

Bryan Robinson always said that Walter Payton helped him achieve his biggest career highlight, and now, sadly, both men are gone long before they should have been lost. Chicago had lost 10 straight games to Green Bay, but Robinson blocked a field goal attempt as time expired to give the Bears a 14-13 victory. He started for the Cards through his final National Football League season in 2010, helping the team not only to the Super Bowl but a pair of NFC West titles.

Most recently, Robinson lived in Gurnee, Illinois.

Robinson's June 11 death came just 11 days before he was to celebrate his 42nd birthday.
