Besides saying the facts, not much else was said. At the moment, no one knows why Jim Sweeney killed people. Several sources, on the other hand, say that he died of a heart attack. Right now, it can’t be confirmed. Between 1996 and 1999, Sweeney played for the Steelers for the last three years of his career. After being picked in the third round of the 1984 NFL Draft out of Pitt, he played for the Green and White for 11 years. Sweeney was a player for the Seattle Seahawks for one season.

Sweeney was born in Pittsburgh in 1962. Before he went to Pitt, he went to Seton-La Salle in the South Hills. For his first two seasons at Pitt, he played tight end and all along the offensive line. As a senior in 1983, he was named to the second team of All-Americans. In 1984, Sweeney was a member of the NFL’s All-Rookie team. During his 16-year career, he played in 228 games, 46 of which were for the Steelers. He played for the Steelers for three seasons, mostly as a backup in the later stages of his career.
