Phillip Adams attended South Carolina State before being selected by the San Francisco 49ers in the 7th round of the 2010 NFL draft. He was a member of five teams over six seasons.

He can now add mass murderer to his resume.

Well, he could have added it if he didn’t take his own life like a coward.

From WFTV:

ROCK HILL, S.C. — (AP) — Former NFL player Phillip Adams fatally shot five people, including a prominent doctor, his wife and their two grandchildren before killing himself early Thursday.

Dr. Robert Lesslie, 70, and his wife, Barbara, 69, were pronounced dead in their home in Rock Hill along with grandchildren Adah Lesslie, 9, and Noah Lesslie, 5, the York County coroner’s office said.

A man who had been working at the Lesslie home, James Lewis, 38, from Gaston, was found shot to death outside. A sixth victim, Robert Shook, 38, of Cherryville, North Carolina, was flown to a Charlotte hospital, where he was in critical condition “fighting hard for his life,” said a cousin, Heather Smith Thompson.
