    Former Titans linebacker Frank Chamberlin has died. He was just 35.

    Chamberlin, who played from 2000-02 with the Titans, lost his battle with brain cancer on Sunday.

    He was a fifth round draft pick by the Titans in 2000, the same year the Titans drafted linebackers Keith Bulluck and Peter Sirmon.

    He later played with the Bengals and Texans. Chamberlin, who played at Boston College, played in 57 career games in the NFL, with three starts.

    Chamberlin was diagnosed with brain cancer last year after initially suffering a seizure while at work. He underwent brain surgery last year to remove a portion of the tumor, and had been fighting the cancer since.

    He is survived by his wife, Lisa, and three daughters, Leah, Brooke, and Micaela.

    I remember the name, not so much the face. He was my back-up MLB in those years of Madden.

    RIP Chamberlin.

    There was some thought that the draft that year could potentially have supplied the staring LB unit for years to come. Chamberlin at MLB with Sirmon and Bulluck at OLB.

    He was like a 61 overall in Madden 04 as the starting MLB.. pretty pathetic lol.

    But it's always sad to hear that a Titan has passed, especially at such a young age. Rest in Peace buddy.
