Adams passed away due to an enlarged heart.
Anyone disagree with me now?
Waste of a second round pick then, I guess.
this is awful RIP
Gaines Adams story
Gonna be some tough questions for the Bears from this. You would think the docs would have picked up his health issues when he joined them just three months ago.
Unless they are doing cardiac echos on everyone they wouldn't have necessarily picked this up
It doesn't matter. When players move they are meant to have thorough physical checks intended to pick these things up. Seems like the Bears didn't do so, and they are paying the price (As well as his family).
damn, he was a man crush of mine in that draft class, thought hed be amazing at OLB
rest in peace.
Sad, sad, sad...
Not a good weeked for Bears defensive linemen.
Wow. way too young. So sad, they are saying an enlarged heart, you would think that would have been caught.
Think there is a slight difference between being arrested and being on a slab in the local morgue.
Died of Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy, basically meaning that the Heart increased in size but not in strength. Common amongst young athletes, in which it's associated with excessive amounts of growth hormone (HGH) and abuse of anabolic steroids.
Considering HGH isn't tested for in the NFL...
yup thats most likely the case.
What is the difference between Gaines Adams and Gaines Adams jokes?
The jokes get old.
