Former NFL Star, 28, Dies Suddenly and Unexpectedly

The sports world has witnessed yet another tragic and untimely passing after former New York Giants offensive lineman Korey Cunningham was found dead at his New Jersey home on Thursday.

Cunningham was just 28 years old.

The Giants wrote on X Friday:

“We are saddened to hear of the passing of Korey Cunningham,” the Giants wrote on X Friday.

“He was a vital part of the spirit and camaraderie of the locker room. Our thoughts are with Korey’s family, friends and teammates.”

NBC News reported that Clifton police responded to calls for concern at Cunningham’s home around 1:15 p.m. Thursday.

Officer found Cunningham “deceased” after forcing entry to his home, a spokesperson said.

The cause of death has not been immediately disclosed.

Nbcdfw.com reported:

The towering 6-foot-6, 311-pound athlete from Alabama played college ball at Cincinnati and was drafted by the Arizona Cardinals in the seventh round of the 2018 NFL draft.

He played for the Cardinals, New England Patriots, and Giants during his career. He was released from the Giants last year and has not played in the NFL since.

He was known for strength, and despite facing foot injuries that ultimately hindered his playing time, Cunningham remained an influential figure in the league.

His former teammate, Justin Pugh, reflected on Cunningham’s unique role within the team, noting:

“We would invite him to the OL dinner every week even though he wasn’t on the team, which doesn’t happen… ever. Team dinners are for players on the team only.”

“Except for Korey… solely because he was beloved by all the guys regardless if you knew him or not.”

Former Giants running back, Saquon Barkley, revealed his shock and sadness over Cunningham’s passing.

Cunningham’s death has prompted a broader discussion on why so many athletes are dying this way, as we’ve seen with many reports this year.
