My cmnt: Tragically another young man struck down in his prime by Fauci and the needless Covid shot. Men in his age group (18-39) should not take the poke. They are at very low risk, it doesn’t work as advertised, and it can and has caused fatal heart attacks in young men.

My cmnt: You can read here about the astonishing rise in sudden deaths by otherwise healthy young men who were unnecessarily vaccinated with the Covid jab.

DALLAS — Adam Zimmer, a recent NFL assistant coach who was the son of former NFL head coach and Cowboys defensive coordinator Mike Zimmer, has died at the age of 38.

Adam Zimmer was most recently working as an offensive analyst for the Cincinnati Bengals.

Zimmer’s sister Corri Zimmer White posted on Instagram Tuesday morning that Adam passed away on Monday. 

“I can’t believe I’m writing this. I lost my big brother yesterday. The kindest, sweetest, family loving, sports obsessed soul there ever was. I’ve felt pain like this once before but it’s been a while and I didn’t know I was able to feel like this again,” she wrote.

“Please pray for our family as we try to navigate through this,” Corri added.

Adam Zimmer attended Heritage High School in Colleyville while his dad was an assistant coach for the Dallas Cowboys. He later played football at Trinity University in San Antonio.

Adam Zimmer served as a defensive assistant with the Saints between 2006 and 2009, including serving as a member of the team’s Super Bowl XLIV coaching staff. 

In 2020, Mike Zimmer promoted his son to a co-defensive coordinator for the Vikings. He remained in that role through the 2021 season and was fired by the Vikings in 2022 after his father was let go from the team. 

Mike Zimmer was a Cowboys assistant coach from 1994-2006, including the team’s defensive coordinator from 2000-2006. He later held coordinator roles in Atlanta and Cincinnati before getting the Vikings job in 2014.
