66 is pretty young. RIP

Former NFL star and "Police Academy" movie actor Bubba Smith was found dead Wednesday at his Los Angeles home, according to police and coroner's office officials. He was 66.

The L.A. County coroner's office said it has not determined a cause of death, but officials believe he died of natural causes.

Just for a couple of years right at the end of his career in 75 & 76. He wasn't even a starter.
