Former NFL offensive lineman Kenyatta Jones died of cardiac arrest, the Tampa Bay Times reported Saturday. He was 39.

Jones played 21 games for the New England Patriots and Washington Redskins. He was a fourth-round draft pick of the Patriots in 2001.

Jones, who was 6 feet 3, 307 pounds while playing in the NFL, was the first player drafted out of South Florida.

“Just a fun-loving guy, man, like a gentle giant,” former South Florida teammate Keith Williams told the Tampa Bay Times. “But on that field, he took care of business.”
