Former Chargers wide receiver Vincent Jackson was found dead in a Brandon, Florida hotel room on Monday.
The Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office confirmed that Jackson died and that it is investigating the cause of death. Jackson was 38 years old and a release from the Sheriff’s Office said no signs of trauma were found.
Jackson was a 2005 second-round pick by the Chargers and spent seven seasons in San Diego. He made two Pro Bowls and caught 272 passes for 4,754 yards and 37 touchdowns during his time with the team, which included a lengthy contract issue that kept him out of the first 10 games of the 2010 season.
