Former Titans LB Frank Chamberlin Loses Battle to Brain Cancer at 35

Posted Nov 18, 2013


NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- Former Titans linebacker Frank Chamberlin lost his battle with brain cancer on Sunday at the age of 35.

Chamberlin was diagnosed with a very serious form of brain cancer last January after collapsing at work with a seizure. He underwent brain surgery within two weeks that removed a portion of the tumor.

Former Titans linebacker Keith Bulluck, who was drafted the same year as Chamberlin tweeted: "RIP to my former teammate & even better friend Frank Chamberlin. If anyone fought hard he did for sure..."

A fifth-round draft pick by the Titans in 2000, Chamberlin played three seasons in Tennessee and later played in Cincinnati and Houston, totaling 57 career NFL games with three starts.

A native of Mahwah, N.J., he leaves behind his wife, Lisa, and three young daughters: Leah, Brooke and Micaela.

"Frank is at peace. Whole, healed and smiling down from heaven. Nothing in this world will ever be the same," a statement read on that web site.
