Former Broncos linebacker Adrian Robinson dies at 25
The Pro Players Association would like to extend our sincere condolences to Adrian Robinson Jr.'s family, friends, and to the Denver Broncos family.
KUSA—Adrian Robinson Jr., who played for the Broncos' 2013 Super Bowl team during the first half of the season, died Saturday night. He was 25.
His agency confirmed his death but did not reveal the cause.
A linebacker from Temple, Robinson played 12 games for the Pittsburgh Steelers as an undrafted rookie in 2012, then was traded to the Philadelphia Eagles in exchange for running back Felix Jones late in the preseason of 2013. Robinson was waived eight days later and the Broncos claimed him to add linebacker depth in light of the season-opening, six-game suspension to Von Miller.
Robinson played in the Broncos' first six games, mostly on special teams. He was waived after the Broncos' sixth game to make room for receiver Tavarres King, who was briefly promoted from the Broncos' practice squad.
Robinson's last message on his Twitter account – which has a photo of him in his Broncos uniform No. 57, exchanging "fives'' with defensive teammate Shaun Phillips, was posted on May 12. It read: "Summer and the laugh of my daughter make me believe in God."
Although Robinson was only a Bronco for seven weeks, his passing brought back sad reminders to the organization that in the past eight years had three players die before their 25th birthday: Cornerback Darrent Williams (2007), running back Damien Nash (2007) and receiver Kenny McKinley (2010).

Former pro-athletes get patriotic
DENVER - Professional athletes showed their patriotism Monday morning in an attention-getting way.
Former sports athletes were out bright and early to celebrate America's Independence Day by waving flags at the Union Avenue bridge over Interstate 25. They caught the attention of drivers passing by with their patriotic display.
Former Nuggets player and now sports radio commentator Scott Hastings showed up along with MLB Hall of Famer Bob McCaslin and others.
This group of people - called the Flag Guys - gathers every major American holiday. The group was started by Denver resident Chris Tucker. Tucker works with the Professional Arena Soccer League. He gathers fellow athletes to show off their stars and stripes.
