Louis NIX III has sadly died.

The NFL player, who played football professionally for teams including the University of Notre Dame and the New York Giants, was found dead on Saturday (February 28) after going missing at the age of 29, People reported.

Police shared that they had “located” the former defensive end, but did not share any additional information at the time, including the cause of death.

The announcement came after police were seen removing a vehicle, which matched a description from a missing person poster as the car he was last seen driving, from a Florida pond, according to CBS Sports.

“We are saddened by the loss of one of our own, Louis Nix III. We send our deepest condolences and love to his family, friends and football brotherhood. Forever in our hearts, Big Lou,” Notre Dame said in a statement.

According to his mother, the football player was still recovering after being shot in December during an armed robbery.
