Former NFL linebacker Frank Chamberlin died Sunday after battling brain cancer. He was 35.

Chamberlin played five seasons in the NFL. He was a fifth-round draft pick of the Tennessee Titans in 2000 and played 43 games from 2000-02. He also played 14 games combined with the Cincinnati Bengals (2003) and Houston Texans (2005).

FightForFrank.org was a website set up earlier this year to help the Chamberlins pay for his cancer treatment.

"Frank is at peace. Whole, healed and smiling down from heaven. Nothing in this world will ever be the same," a statement read on the organization's website.

Chamberlin had a seizure in January and was diagnosed with brain cancer. He then underwent surgery to have part of the tumor removed, according to the website.

Former Titans linebacker Keith Bulluck, who was also drafted by the team in 2000, remembered Chamberlin as a friend.

"RIP to my former teammate & even better friend Frank Chamberlin. If anyone fought hard he did for sure," Bulluck wrote on Twitter.

Chamberlin, who was living in New Jersey, is survived by his wife and three daughters.
