Former Bears Bryan Robinson –- “B-Rob” to teammates and friends –- came into the NFL as an undrafted free agent and earned himself a career and a place in Bears' lore. Late Saturday night, the defensive lineman was found dead at age 41 in a Milwaukee motel room.
The Toledo, Ohio, native was pronounced dead at 10:17 p.m. after being found at the Midpoint Motel. Autopsy and toxicology reports from the Milwaukee County Medical Examiner’s office were pending as of Monday morning.
Robinson, who played for the Bears from 1998 to 2003, was one of those individuals who made this job fun for this reporter over the years, even as he went on to play for Miami, Cincinnati and finally the Arizona Cardinals. Grabbing breakfast with B-Rob at the Golden Torch Restaurant in Waukegan was a tradition where the conversations had to do with a lot more than football, and seeing him down the road when the Bears played the Bengals and Cardinals meant something, because you knew what he’d overcome to achieve what he did, playing in a Super Bowl with the Cardinals.
