RICHMOND – Former NFL defensive back Terrell Roberts was shot and killed at his grandmother’s home in Richmond on Wednesday night, according to police and news reports.
Terrell Roberts, who played two seasons for the Cincinnati Bengals, was at the home on the 1200 block of Fascination Circle when someone walked in and shot him in the backyard, CBS San Francisco reported.
Roberts’ family told the news station that he had a “heart of gold” and was “not mixed up in anything bad.”
Roberts, who attended El Cerrito High School and Oregon State University, was signed by the Bengals in May 2003 after going undrafted. The team released him in 2005.
