Chris Gedney died at the age of 47 Friday. No cause of death has been announced.

"Chris was a wonderful co-worker, a friend to all and deeply loyal to Syracuse University and our community", Syracuse athletic director John Wildhack said in a statement.

Gedney was selected by the Bears in the third round of the 1993 draft out of Syracuse. Gedney starred there as a player and grew up nearby.

A consensus All-American for the Orangemen in 1992 who returned to work for his alma mater, Gedney set program records for receptions by a tight end in a season (34 in 1992) and career (91). He was plagued by multiple injuries while appearing in 28 games with 12 starts over four seasons in Chicago, catching 28 passes for 307 yards and three touchdowns. The play went 23 yards but wasn't enough as Seattle won the game 33-14.

Gedney played in the National Football League with the Chicago Bears and Arizona Cardinals following a stellar career at Syracuse, where he helped the Orange win four straight bowl games. He had 28 receptions in his first three seasons before landing on injured reserve prior to his fourth campaign.

Syracuse football has lost one of its stars, and most vocal supporters.

After his playing career, Gedney went into broadcasting as a football analyst for Cardinals games.

After his NFL career ended in 2000, he served as a football analyst for the Cardinals and the Insight Bowl on XTRA Sports 910 Radio.
