Ticats defensive tackle Adrian Robinson has died.

The 25-year-old from Harrisburg, Pennsylvania died Saturday night, his agents said in a statement on Facebook. The cause of death is currently unknown.

Medical examiner is saying it is suicide by hanging: http://www.pennlive.com/midstate/index. ... 80fe2b506a

For anyone wondering about Deanjo's post, the link he included was, for awhile, to a Daily News report stating that Robinson was killed in a shooting. That was, obviously, somehow reported in error and that link has been updated to the corrected Daily News link posted by Blogskee Wee Wee. At one point the Toronto Sun website also reported the shooting story.

Thanks for posting the link challenger99. The article helps us to know, just a tiny bit, who Adrian was. Unfortunately, we won't get the opportunity to know him better but it sounds like he might have been a good back up for Hickman or Norwood. Sadly we will never know.

Condolences to the family, friends and former team mates as they deal with this tragic death.

'He leaves behind a young daughter, Avery Marie.'

That is the tragedy.
We should help her.

there's already a fundraising page set up.

Agents for #Ticats Adrian Robinson created fundraising page for his little girl. The picture will break your heart. http://www.gofundme.com/averymarie

Il s'est pendu, le pauvre. Dieu ait soin de lui.

Terrible tragedy. Thoughts and prayers to his loved ones. Breaks my heart that he didn't get the help he obviously needed.

When I read the story, my heart fell. Then I saw a picture of him carrying his daughter on his shoulders and I almost cried.

As a father and parent, it's an even greater tragedy that his little girl will grow up without her dad.

Sad story , sorry to the family RIP
