Former Iowa State football player Jason Berryman has been found dead in his Jefferson, Texas home.
Police say his body was found Wednesday with multiple gunshot wounds. Few other details have been released. Police Chief Joe C. Hall says no suspects have been identified.
The 28-year-old Berryman starred at defensive end as a freshman in 2003 when he was named the team's most valuable player and the Big 12's defensive newcomer of the year. He last played for the Cyclones in 2005 when he was named defensive MVP in the Houston Bowl.
Berryman later signed a two-year contract with the NFL's Cincinnati Bengals, but was waived in 2007.
