Keith McCants the former hard hitting linebacker from the University of Alabama was found dead in his house on Thursday morning.

According to police reports, the 53 year old was the fourth overall pick in the 1990 NFL Draft by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

The Pinellas County Sherrif’s Office told ESPN, deputies were called to a St. Petersburg home at about 5:10 a.m. Thursday. McCants was dead inside the house, where others who made the 911 call also apparently lived.

“It appears it was a drug overdose, but we are awaiting confirmation from the medical examiner’s office,” sheriff’s spokesperson Amanda Sinni said. “This is still an open investigation.”

The former All-American linebacker at Alabama played for the Buccaneers, Cardinals, and Houston Oilers. McCants had been arrested many times for possession of drugs, and drug paraphernalia.
