The details surrounding his death are unknown. Robinson was an UDFA signee of the Pittsburgh Steelers in 2012. In 2013 Adrian was claimed off waivers by the Broncos after being released by the Philadelphia Eagles. From 2012-2013 Adrian appeared in 22 games, playing in 6 games as a Bronco where he recorded two tackles.

His agents released this statement on Facebook:

We ask that you please respect his family's privacy during this difficult time, and especially keep his daughter Avery Marie in your prayers. Thank you for all of your support and consideration.
