Former NFL linebacker Robert Eddins was killed in 2016, but apparently it came under grisly circumstances. The former Buffalo Bill and Saskatchewan Roughrider was reportedly killed by three drug dealers in the basement of his grandmother’s home and it was done “execution style.”

Eddins only appeared in one game for the Bills between his 2011 and 2012 seasons. Officials have charged three men in connection with the killings and they say the men were all part of a plan to deal more than 5 kilos worth of cocaine and heroin. Prosecutors are also saying that the men specifically traveled from Alabama to Detroit to kill Eddins and they ended up killing another man as well.

After failing to stick with the Bills, Eddins made his way to the Canadian Football League for the Roughriders before getting cut in June after injuring his hamstring. He played his college football at Ball State.
