I just saw Adrian a little more than a week ago. He was taking classes to finish his degree and looking to continue his career in the CFL.— OwlScoop.com (@OwlScoop_com) May 17, 2015
From the outpouring of love and sadness on social media this morning, you can see how respected and loved he was by his teammates.— OwlScoop.com (@OwlScoop_com) May 17, 2015
Adrian Robinson, OLB who spent month with Chargers in 2013, died last night. He was 25. No further details at time. Had months-old daughter.— Michael Gehlken (@UTgehlken) May 17, 2015
Robinson's tenure with Philadelphia was extremely brief. The team acquired him in a trade with the Steelers in late August 2013. The Eagles sent veteran running back Felix Jones to Pittsburgh in the deal. Robinson was cut only one week later after first arriving. He caught on with a few other teams in brief stints up until Washington released him last summer.
The cause of Robinson's death is currently unclear. Please keep his family in your thoughts and prayers.
