Former NFL linebacker Frank Chamberlin died Sunday after a year-long battle with brain cancer. He was 35.
Chamberlin, who was selected by the Tennessee Titans in the fifth round of the 2000 draft, played in 43 games for the Titans (2000-02). He also played for the Cincinnati Bengals ('03) and Houston Texans ('05), appearing in 57 games in his five-season career.

"Frank is at peace. Whole, healed and smiling down from heaven. Nothing in this world will ever be the same," a statement read on FightForFrank.org, a website set up to help the Chamberlin family pay for his treatment.
Chamberlin suffered a seizure last January and was diagnosed with brain cancer and underwent surgery to have part of the tumor removed, according to the website.
Former Titans linebacker Keith Bulluck, who also was drafted by the team in 2000, tweeted a remembrance of his former teammate Monday.

Chamberlin, who was living in New Jersey, is survived by his wife, Lisa, and three daughters, Leah, Brooke, and Micaela.
