Former Broncos offensive lineman found dead in home at 41

A former National Football League player died at his home in Abingdon, Maryland Wednesday morning, according to the Harford County Sheriff’s Office.

Warren Christopher Banks, also known as Chris Banks, 41, was found dead in his home Wednesday morning, Sheriff’s Office spokesperson Edward Hopkins said. The death was reported as unattended and was not suspicious, he said.

Formerly with the Denver Broncos, Banks was a member of the 1998 team that won Super Bowl XXXIII. The Broncos released this statement on Chris Banks.

“The Denver Broncos are deeply saddened with the news that former offensive lineman Chris Banks has passed away,” the Broncos said in a statement. “Our hearts go out to his family and friends.”

Banks was drafted as a seventh round draft pick in the 1996 NFL Draft Pick from the University of Kansas. Banks also played for the Atlanta Falcons before turning in his cleats to work for TSA.

According to Lisa Farbstein, spokesperson for the Transportation Security Administration, Banks had served as a TSA agent at BWI Thurgood Marshall Airport since 2008.
