NASHVILLE, Tenn. -

Former Tennessee Titans kicker Rob Bironas was killed in a car accident Saturday night in south Nashville.

The accident happened in the 800 block of Battery lane around 11 p.m.

Metro police confirmed a white SUV driven by Bironas lost control and crashed into several trees before landing upside down.

Bironas was transported to Vanderbilt University Medical Center where he was pronounced deceased.

A tweet sent from his Twitter account said It's w/ heavy hearts that we confirm the passing RB # 2 We appreciate your respect for the family's privacy and your prayers at this time.

Bironas married his wife, Rachel Bradshaw, in Nashville on June 28, 2014.

Bironas singed with the Titans in 2005 as an unrestricted free agent and was released by the team in March.

He holds the NFL record for most field goals in a single game after he successfully converted eight field goals against the Houston Texans in October of 2007.

Bironas was the named the AFC player of the month and to the Pro Bowl in 2008. He led the Titans in scoring in both 2005 and 2006.

Bironas founded the Rob Bironas fund in 2008, which is a Nashville-based charity that works to engage youth with area musicians.

@AdamSchefter: Such sad news: former Titans K Rob Bironas, who married Terry Bradshaw's daughter in June, was killed in a car crash Saturday. He was 36.

Just caught that. Wow. Was wondering if Bironas got picked up by anyone last week when I was considering a kicker to pick up in fantasy. Rough year for Bradshaw family.

He just kicked for the Lions this week, as they considered replacing Nick Freese.

So sad. Thoughts and prayers to his family.

Terrible. Poor bride - just married him 12 weeks ago.
Rob was on top of the world, hard to believe these things actually happen.

He had a great story too - undrafted, spent years in arena football and trying to make the NFL and then becoming one of the league's best kickers for close to a decade.

Rob was just in Detroit on this week working out for the Lions. I was hoping he would sign.

Terry Bradshaw missed the Fox Sports NFL pregame show Sunday after his son-in-law, former Tennessee Titans kicker Rob Bironas, was killed in a car accident Saturday night.

“Terry will not be on today’s edition of ‘FOX NFL Sunday,” the network said in a statement. “He flew home to take care of his family.”

Bironas, 36, married Bradshaw’s daughter Rachel in June and was killed at about 11 p.m. when he lost control of his SUV on a road about a mile from his Nashville home.

Very sad news. I've had Bironas on several fantasy teams over the years. My condolences to the Bironas and Bradshaw families.
