New, comments

Stacy Robinson, who played on two Super Bowl-winning teams with the New York Giants, has died at the age of 50. Robinson was reportedly diagnosed with cancer in 2009.

Here is a statement from Giants co-owner John Mara on Robinson's death:

"We are deeply saddened by the passing of Stacy Robinson. He was a good man who was loved and respected by his teammates and everyone in this organization. His work on behalf of the Players Association was of great benefit to many players. He will be missed. His family is in our thoughts and prayers."

Robinson played six seasons for the Giants (1985-1990), catching 48 passes. He had 29 of those receptions in 1986. In the Super Bowl that year Robinson caught three passes for 62 yards as the Giants defeated the Denver Broncos.

Robinson was never able to duplicate that 1986 season, catching just 19 more passes in his career.
