LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Former San Diego Chargers defensive lineman
Chris Mims has been found dead in his downtown apartment. Police say the 38-year-old Mims was discovered shortly before 9:30 a.m. by officers conducting a welfare check. Police say there does not appear to be any evidence of foul play.

Coroner's officials declined to comment because Mims' relatives
had not yet been notified. Mims played eight seasons in the NFL, seven with the Chargers and one with the Washington Redskins. He retired in 2000.
