Former NFL Star O.J. Simpson Passes Away at 76

Former NFL running back and controversial figure O.J. Simpson has passed away at the age of 76 after a battle with cancer.

His family confirmed that Simpson succumbed to the disease yesterday in Las Vegas, where he had been undergoing chemotherapy treatments following a prostate cancer diagnosis.

Simpson’s life was marked by both athletic achievements and legal controversies. Rising to fame as a standout college football player, he went on to have a successful career in the NFL, where he made history by becoming the first player to surpass the 2,000-yard rushing mark in a 14-game season.

However, Simpson’s legacy is also shadowed by his highly publicised acquittal in the 1995 trial for the murders of his former wife, Nicole Brown, and her friend, Ron Goldman.


In 2008, Simpson was sentenced to 33 years in prison on charges of armed robbery and kidnapping related to a confrontation in Las Vegas.

He was granted parole and released from prison in 2017.

Throughout his football career, Simpson was a dominant force on the field, earning accolades such as six Pro Bowl selections and five first-team All-Pro honors.

He was also named to the NFL’s All-Decade Team of the 1970s, the NFL 75th Anniversary All-Time Team, and the NFL 100 All-Time Team, solidifying his place as one of the greatest players in league history.
