Default Gaines Adams dead at 26

Apparently due to an enlarged heart. DE for TB Bucs, traded to Chicago last year. Too young. Not sure how that can go unnoticed in the NFL with all the physicals.

Gaines played right here in my back yard at Clemson and also grew up 30 minutes down the road in Greenwood SC

Prayers sent to family and friends

So much potential..he was the Bucs fourth overall pick in the '07 draft. Don't know why he was traded..always a good interview, happy kid...what a shame..
