Former NFL player Charles Johnson is dead.
The cause of death isn’t known at this time.
Johnson was a first round pick for the Steelers coming out of Colorado in 1994 and spent nearly a decade in the NFL.
He played for Pittsburgh, the Eagles, Patriots and his final season for the Bills.
By the time his NFL career came to an end, he snagged 24 touchdown catches and hauled in more than 4,600 receiving yards. Anyone who can put up those numbers over nearly a decade of action was hell of a player.
The NFL is a tough league, but Charles carved out his legacy. Now, at the age of 50, he’s passed away. It’s an incredibly sad situation.
Our thoughts and prayers are with his family during this tough time.
