Former Cowboys Linebacker Godfrey Myles Dies From Heart Attack

Former Dallas Cowboys linebacker Godfrey Miles died on Thursday after suffering a stroke according to Fox Sports. Godfrey was only 42 years old.


The cause of death is apparently a "massive" heart attack that Myles suffered. According to the report, Myles was on life support before passing away.


Godfrey won three Super Bowls with the Cowboys in the 90s and played six seasons with the team. Godfrey played for the Florida Gators prior to being drafted by the Cowboys in the third round of the 1991 draft.
