    Former NFL runningback Ironhead Heyward dead at 39

    ESPN has just reported this per the Atlanta-constitution journal. Brain tumor apparently. Heyward was a former Vike I believe?

    Sorry to hear this. My thoughts and prayers are with the Heyward family. :cry:
    ...Rodgers had to hold on the ball longer, giving players like Jared "I am completely insane and will literally eat your children" Allen time to sack Rodgers again.And again. And again. Actually I think Rodgers may have nightmares about Jared Allen the rest of the year.

    first-round selection of the New Orleans Saints in 1988. He played from 1988-92 for the Saints and then had stints with Chicago (1993), Atlanta (1994-96), St. Louis (1997) and Indianapolis (1998).
