Former Miami Dolphins defensive end and linebacker Quentin Moses was killed in a house fire in Georgia Sunday morning, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution has reported. Andria Godard, 31, and her 10-year-old daughter Jasmine were also killed in the blaze that started around 6am on Sunday.

Moses was found unconscious in the building, but was pronounced dead at Clearview Medical Center. He was 33.

The cause of the fire is still under investigation.

Moses played four seasons with the Dolphins. He was originally drafted into the NFL as a third-round pick of the Oakland Radiers in 2007, but was among the final roster cuts at the end of the preseason. He was then claimed off waivers by the Arizona Cardinals, but did not make an appearance before being waived a few weeks later. The Dolphins signed him at the end of October 2007, with him playing the final seven games of the season, with one start, that year, recording 8 tackles with 1.5 sacks. From 2008 to 2010, he played in 37 more games, with one start, playing both linebacker and defensive end, recording 27 more tackles and two more sacks.

He played for the Virginia Destroyers in the United Football League in 2011. He had spent the last five years as the defensive line coach for Reihardt University.
