Former NFL running back George Atkinson III died a year after his twin brother died by suicide, Notre Dame football officials confirmed.

Atkinson was 27 years old. No cause of his death has been released. His brother Josh died on Dec. 25, 2018.

The twin brothers were sons of Super Bowl champion George Atkinson II. Starting in 2011, the brothers both played for the Notre Dame Fighting Irish.

“Our thoughts and prayers go out to the family and friends of the late George Atkinson III,” Notre Dame Football tweeted on Tuesday.

George Atkinson III played for the NFL’s Oakland Raiders and the Cleveland Browns.

In October, George penned an open letter in The Unsealed, titled “How I Turned My Losses Into Lessons,” detailing his struggles with his brother’s death.
