Details are scarce, but the cause of death is likely heart-related, as Williams passed away during a flag football tournament in South Florida.

He had been a seventh-round draft pick of the Minnesota Vikings in 2007.

"We are shocked and saddened to hear about the passing of Chandler," Tampa Bay Storm team president Derrick Brooks said in a statement published on the AFL website. "Our heart and prayers go out to his fiancée Vanitia Harrigan, daughter Tori Williams and the rest of his family."

Wiliams graduated from Florida International University.
