Former Iowa and New York Giants safety Tyler Sash has died at 27.

The Iowa state medical examiner's office confirmed Sash's death to ESPN.com. An official said an autopsy would be performed Wednesday.

"Emergency services responded to 719 Fox Run Drive around 10 a.m. CT Tuesday in reference to an unresponsive male," The Oskaloosa, Iowa, police department said in a statement. "It was determined the man had died and he was identified as Sash, who lived in Oskaloosa. Sash's death is under investigation but no foul play is suspected."

Sash starred for Iowa, where he recorded 13 interceptions and set a team record with 392 interception return yards. He left school after his junior season and was a sixth-round pick of the Giants in the 2011 NFL draft. Sash spent two seasons with the Giants, winning a Super Bowl, before being cut in August 2013.
