Former Dallas Cowboys linebacker Godfrey Myles died Thursday from complications of a  heart attack, according to the University of Florida. He was 42.

Myles’ cousin, Donald Holley, said he suffered a heart attack Wednesday in Miami.

Myles, a third-round pick from Florida, played six seasons with the Cowboys,  winning three Super Bowl titles. Myles, a backup linebacker, started 11 games  during the 1995 season. He suffered a torn ACL in the Cowboys’ Super Bowl XXX
victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers.

His NFL career ended the next season.

At Florida, Myles was a team captain and first-team All-SEC pick as a senior  in 1990.
