CHICAGO (AP) — Dave Duerson, a four-time Pro Bowl safety who played on Super Bowl winners with the Chicago Bears and New York Giants, has died. He was 50.

The Bears released a statement Friday saying they are "stunned and saddened" by the news.

A native of Muncie, Indiana, and an All-American at Notre Dame, Duerson was a third-round draft pick by the Bears in 1983 and became a key figure on one of the greatest defenses ever assembled.

Miami-Dade Police Detective Robert Williams says the body of a Dave Duerson was found Thursday in Sunny Isles Beach, Fla. Computer records show that the Duerson who lived at the address was born the same month and year as the player.

Investigators have not determined the cause of death. Williams says detectives are awaiting the medical examiner's report.
