The police said Zimmer’s death didn’t look suspicious

Reports state that the police found Adam Zimmer dead after responding to a welfare check at his home in the 2500 block of Condon Court. Zimmer had passed by the time the authorities arrived. 

“There was nothing suspicious [about the death], and there didn’t appear to be any evidence of foul play,” Police Captain Wayne Wegener said. Captain Wegener said the Hennepin County Medical Examiner’s Office would determine the manner and cause of death. 

Condolences have flown in from all over the NFL, including from Vikings ownership, which said in a statement (per FOX Sports):

“Adam was a kind, respectful man, and over his years in Minnesota, it was evident he cared tremendously about his family, his players, his fellow coaches and the Vikings front office staff. Our thoughts are with Mike, Corri, Marki and the entire Zimmer family.”
