Though his untimely death officially has been attributed to an enlarged heart, former Buccaneers and Bears defensive end Gaines Adams had marijuana and alcohol in his system at the time of his passing, according to the Index-Journal of Greenwood, South Carolina, via MyFoxChicago.com.
Greenwood County Coroner Jim Coursey said that neither substance contributed to Adams’ death.
He had a blood-alcohol concentration of only 0.021 percent, roughly one-fourth of the legal limit to drive a car.
Adams, the fourth overall pick in the 2007 draft, suddenly died on January 17. He was 26.
