Former NFL linebacker Frank Chamberlin, 35, died this past weekend following a battle with a rare form of brain cancer.

Chamberlin played in nine games with the Texans in 2005, his final season after playing for three NFL teams. Chamberlin also played for the Tennessee Titans (2000-02) and the Cincinnati Bengals (2003-04).

While in Houston, Chamberlin totaled three tackles. For his NFL career he collected 21 tackles, two pass deflections and one sack coming during the ’01 season with the Titans.

Also in his career, he forced one fumble. He played in 57 games, starting three.

His best season from a statistical standpoint came in ’02 where he recorded 11 tackles (five assisted) with one fumble recovery in his final season with the Titans.

The Houston Chronicle and ESPN reported he died Sunday at a northern New Jersey hospital.

He was drafted by the Titans in the fifth round (Pick 160) out of Boston College as a linebacker. While in college he also played at fullback.

The Toro TImes sends its condolences out to the family and friends of Frank Chamberlin.
