List of American football players who died during their careers

This is a list of players of American football who died while still on a team roster. Included are players in professional and college football who have died of any cause. Players who ended their careers to join the military and died while in service are included. Each player is listed with the team to which he was assigned at the time of his death (or, in the case of military members, the last team for which they played before enlisting), rather than the team with which he spent most of his career. Players who were free agents at the time of their death are not listed.
