Former NFL RB & Heisman Trophy Winner Rashaan Salaam Passes Away at 42


Horrible news.

Former Heisman Trophy winner and Chicago Bears player Rashaan Salaam was found dead in a park in Boulder, Colorado on Tuesday.


“Officials tell TMZ Sports … Salaam’s body was discovered in a parking lot at Eben G. Fine Park in Boulder, Colorado late Monday night.

We’re told there were no obvious signs of foul play. An autopsy is scheduled to be performed.

Salaam won the Heisman in 1994 — beating out guys like Steve McNair, Warren Sapp and Kerry Collins.

He was later drafted by the Bears in the 1st round of the 1995 Draft but only spent a few seasons in the NFL.

Salaam went on to run an organization dedicated to helping underprivileged kids.”
