    Nope. If a player dies you just lose the player.

    Suspected heart attack.

    At 26?!?

    There's so many sportsmen had cardiac problems over the last year or two, there's a few footballers died like Antonio Puerta and Daniel Jarque.

    Awful.

    Re: OT: Gaines Adams dead?!

    Just saw the breaking news on NFL.com. WTF? Autopsy due later and he was said to be in good health.

    No reports he was the victim of anything so I guess it's either some defect or another overdose story.

    I remember reading that the Patriots first pick Ever was already dead when they chose him in the first rnd. He had died in a car crash three days earlier, like you said they didn't get any re-do.....anyways RIP Gains Adams

    Not that I agree with the sentiments, but it's an apt poem even so.

    I wonder if these deaths from an enlarged heart might cause the NFL to consider imposing some more health standards to stop these men from getting so large.

    I understand the nature of the game demands guys these size but...well, you know what I mean.

    May want to research this. Pats 1st pick ever was Rob Burton who went on to have a solid career w/ the team.
