I've just heard the news that Gaines Adams (the defensive end for The Chicago Bears) has died from a reported heart attack on January 17, 2010 and
pronounced dead at 8:21AM at the young age of 26.
Adams, a former Clemson University football star, died Sunday morning after he was taken to the Emergency Room at Self Regional in Greenwood,
County Coroner James T. Coursey told the Greensville News.
Adams, a defensive end, was the fourth player chosen in the 2007 National Football League draft by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
He was traded from Tampa Bay to the Chicago Bears in October. An autopsy will be performed today by a forensic pathologist.
