Stacy Robinson, who played for the New York Giants and later had a key role with the NFL Players Association, has died at the age of 50.
“He was diagnosed in 2009 with multiple myeloma, a cancer of the blood,” sports lawyer David Cornwell tells PFT. “A good man gone.”
Robinson was responsible for handling player appeals of suspensions, duties he handled for at least the past 10 years.
“We are deeply saddened by the passing of Stacy Robinson,” Giants co-owner John Mara said in a statement, via USA Today. “He was a good man who was loved and respected by his teammates and everyone in this organization. His work on behalf of the Players Association was of great benefit to many players. He will be missed. His family is in our thoughts and prayers.”
Robinson played for the Giants’ Super Bowl champions in 1986 and 1990. He caught three passes for 62 yards in the Super Bowl XXI win over the Broncos.
We extend our condolences to Stacy’s family, friends, colleagues, teammates, and coaches.
