We have sad news out of the NFL this morning as Bengals offensive analyst Adam Zimmer passed away. Zimmer is the son of longtime NFL head coach Mike Zimmer.

Adam Zimmer was a linebackers coach with the Vikings from 2014-19, and spent two seasons as the co-defensive coordinator alongside Andre Patterson. He was hired this off-season by Cincinnati.

His sister posted 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. I’ve felt pain like this once before but it’s been a while and I didn’t know I was able to feel like this again. My heart is shattered and it hurts so bad. I’m so lost, 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,” Corre (Zimmer) White posted.

The details surrounding his passing haven’t been announced.

At the time of his passing he was only 38 years old.
