I don’t know if this situation was karma, but it definitely ended bad for all parties involved.  Dr. Craig Brigham, the neck surgeon who cleared Georgia All American Jarvis Jones weeks before this years draft, and who was being sued by former NFL player Samari Rolle for a botched surgery, was found dead outside his Charlotte home Monday morning.

The Charlotte Observer is reporting that Brigham was found dead about 7 a.m. Monday.

Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police called it a “sudden/natural death investigation.”

“We are extremely sad to report that Dr. Craig Brigham passed away this morning from what appears to be causes related to an existing medical condition,” Blair Primis, a representative of OrthoCarolina where Brigham worked, said in a statement.

Brigham, 58, was facing a lawsuit, filed in 2011, that claimed he did not properly handle follow-up care after Rolle’s spinal fusion surgery in September 2008. Brigham and OrthoCarolina denied the claim, although they didn’t specify why in legal papers that they filed to answer the suit.

Brigham’s wife said the lawsuit by Rolle had taken a toll on her husband, but that she was confident that Craig Brigham would have won.
