Former Texan, Louis Nix III, found dead

          Former Texan defensive tackle Louis Nix III was found dead in Florida on Saturday, three days after being reported missing by his mother. Nix was 29.

The Jacksonville, Florida Sheriff’s Office pulled a car from a pond near Nix’s apartment that matched his vehicle’s description. Nix was last seen alive Tuesday.

The Notre Dame product was a third-round draft pick of the Texans in 2014. He sat out his entire rookie campaign because of injury. He has has been out of the NFL for four years.

Besides the Texans, Nix also spent time with the Giants, Washington and Jaguars. He played only four career games, all with the Giants in 2015.

Nix was shot in December while doing maintenance on his car and had recovered. The Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office has not indicated the shooting is related to Nix’s death.
