Former NFL Player Dave Duerson Found Dead

| by Off The Record

Ugh. This sucks. Former Chicago Bears DB Dave Duerson was found dead in his Miami home on Thursday. No cause of death has yet been released.

Duerson, a Notre Dame product, won two Super Bowls in his 11-year career. He won one with the ’85 Bears and was also a member of the 1990 Giants team that won it all against the Buffalo Bills.

“Our family asks that you please remember Dave as a good, kind, and caring man,” Alicia Duerson, Dave’s ex-wife said.

Dave was a colleague of mine at, where he had a radio show called “Double Time with Double D.” I was on his show as a guest not too long ago talking about the NFL labor situation. He was extremely nice to me and came off as a very, very intelligent dude.

R.I.P., Dave. Our thoughts are with your family.
