    Sam Mills dead at 45

    CHARLOTTE, N.C. (April 18, 2005) -- Sam Mills, an undersized linebacker who became a Pro Bowl player with New Orleans and Carolina and was later an assistant coach for the Panthers, died after fighting cancer for nearly two years, the Panthers said. He was 45.

    Mills, who was diagnosed with cancer of the small intestine in August 2003 but continued to coach Carolina's linebackers between chemotherapy treatments, died at his home.

    I remember him , gritty player whose play belied his size, 45 is no age to pass on.
    Sympathy to his wife and family
    Time spent annoying a Packer fan is never time wasted...

    RIP Sam Mills...he was one heck of a football player...and an even more courageous human being. I remember his play for the Saints...he was all heart and soul...I wish his family all the blessings that God can give them.
    BANNED OR DEAD...I'LL TAKE EITHER ONE
