Former Dallas Cowboys linebacker Godfrey Myles died Thursday from complications of a heart attack, according to the University of Florida. He was 42.
Myles' cousin, Donald Holley, said he suffered a heart attack Wednesday in Miami.

Myles, a third-round pick from Florida, played six seasons with the Cowboys, winning three Super Bowl titles. Myles, a backup linebacker, started 11 games during the 1995 season. He suffered a torn ACL in the Cowboys' Super Bowl XXX victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers.

His NFL career ended the next season.

At Florida, Myles was a team captain and first-team All-SEC pick as a senior in 1990.

Sad story at any age. But sadder at age 42.

The Dallas Morning News makes a tribute to his fallen warrior.

I was wondering if anyone else had that feeling.

I would be a liar if I said I didn't miss that uniform and those days. I grew up an Oilers fans and every once in a while when I see a picture like that it brings me back. I loved Haywood too.

At quick glance you might think that was a positive play for the Cowboys however that was probably a clutch grab for good yardage.
