Former seventh-round draft pick of the Minnesota Vikings in 2007, Chandler Williams has died at the age of 27 while participating in a flag football tournament. Williams played last season in the AFL for the Tampa Bay Storm where he recorded 83 catches for 996 yards and 17 touchdowns. From the AFL.com: "We are shocked and saddened to hear about the passing of Chandler," Tampa Bay Storm team president Derrick Brooks said. "Our heart and prayers go out to his fiancée Vanitia Harrigan, daughter Tori Williams and the rest of his family." Originally a seventh round selection by the Minnesota Vikings in 2007, Williams became just the second player from Florida International University to be drafted. He also spent time with the Miami Dolphins, Atlanta Falcons, Kansas City Chiefs and the CFL’s Toronto Argonauts.
