MILWAUKEE -- Former Arizona Cardinals player Bryan Robinson was found dead in a Milwaukee motel room late Saturday.

Robinson was 41. He was found in a room at the Midpoint Motel on W. Appleton Ave. on the city's northwest side. The Milwaukee County Medical Examiner's Office said they're investigating it as a "sudden death," but there were no obvious signs of trauma or foul play. 

The defensive lineman spent six season with the Bears, from 1998-2003. He also had stints with the St. Louis Rams, Miami Dolphins, Cincinnati Bengals, and was a part of the Arizona Cardinals' Super Bowl team.

The Chicago Tribune's Bears reporter, Brad Biggs, notes Robinson is perhaps best remembered for the "Walter Payton game" in November of 1999 , when Robinson blocked Green Bay Packers kicker Ryan Longwell's field goal attempt to win the game, snapping a 10-game losing streak to the Packers.

Autopsy and toxicology reports for Robinson are pending.
