Former Charger Found Dead

No foul play suspected, police say

Former San Diego Chargers defensive lineman Chris Mims has been found dead in his apartment in downtown Los Angeles.

Police said the 38-year-old was discovered shortly before 9:30 a.m. by officers conducting a welfare check.  Police say there does not appear to be any evidence of foul play.

Coroner's officials declined to comment because Mims' relatives had not yet been notified.

Mims played eight seasons in the NFL, seven with the Chargers and one with the Washington Redskins. He retired in 2000.
