Former Titans Kicker Rob Bironas Killed In Car Crash

Arizona Cardinals  v Tennessee Titans

Sad news today, as former Titans kicker Rob Bironas was killed in an overnight car crash in Nashville, Tenn.

He was just 36 years old. Reports says that Bironas was involved in a single-vehicle crash in the 800 block of Battery Lane around 11 p.m. Saturday.

He lost control of the SUV he was driving while traveling at a high rate of speed, and the vehicle went off the road and hit several trees before ending up in a drainage culvert, upside down.

Bironas was transported Vanderbilt University Medical Center and pronounced dead on arrival.

Police say there was no evidence of alcohol on the scene.

Bironas married Rachel Bradshaw, the daughter of Pro Football Hall of Fame quarterback Terry Bradshaw, in June. Aaron said a Metro police chaplain was with her shortly after the crash.

Bironas kicked for the Titans for nine seasons. They released him in March.

The team said in a statement early Sunday morning that it was “deeply saddened” to learn about Bironas’ death.

“Rob made a significant impact as a player in his nine years with the team and more importantly touched many lives in the Nashville community off the field,” the statement said. “Our thoughts and prayers go out to his wife, Rachel, and his family during this very difficult time.”
