The NFL acquired heartbreaking information this Tuesday morning. Bengals offensive analyst Adam Zimmer has died on the younger age of 38.
Zimmer, the son of former Vikings head coach Mike Zimmer, has been across the NFL since 2006.
From 2006-2009, Zimmer was an assistant linebackers coach for the Saints. He then spent just a few years on the Chiefs and one 12 months on the Bengals earlier than becoming a member of the Vikings.
During his stint in Minnesota, Zimmer was a linebackers coach. He was promoted to co-defensive coordinator in 2020.
Zimmer’s sister, Corri, introduced that he handed away on Instagram.
“I can’t believe I’m writing this. I lost my big brother yesterday. The kindest, sweetest, family loving, sports obsessed soul there ever was,” she wrote. “I’ve felt ache like this as soon as earlier than but it surely’s been some time and I didn’t know I used to be in a position to really feel like this once more. My coronary heart is shattered and it hurts so dangerous. I don’t know how one can juggle being a mother to at least one 12 months outdated twin boys and the grief of shedding my brother so unexpectedly. I’m so misplaced, I’m so overwhelmed, I’m so heartbroken.
“My brother was one of my best friends, especially after my mom died, we became so close. He was always there for me and always the first to show up and volunteer at my foundation events… I never even had to ask. Always telling me what a good job I did and how proud he was of me. His support and love for me was SO big and I hope he knew how much I loved him. In the last year he told me countless times how he loved watching me be a mom and how proud he was of me. Please pray for our family as we try to navigate through this. Lord, we need your strength now more than ever. Please don’t let us lose faith.”
Our ideas are with the Zimmer household right now.
