Former Giants offensive lineman Mitch Petrus died Thursday night of an apparent heat stroke, the Pulaski County Coroner confirmed to the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette. He was only 32.

Petrus, who played three NFL seasons, died at 10:45 p.m. after being taken to Baptists Health Medical Center-North Little Rock. The coroner's records say Petrus reported feeling ill after working all day outside and in his family's shop before he was hospitalized. There had been a heat advisory in effect for much of Arkansas on Thursday.

A walk-on at the University of Arkansas, Petrus earned all-Southeastern Conference honors during his junior and senior seasons. The Giants took the 6'3", 300-pound guard in the fifth round of the 2010 NFL draft. Petrus went on to win a Super Bowl with New York in his second season and finished his stint with the team with 23 appearances and three starts. He concluded his three-year professional career with a season split between the Giants, Patriots and Titans.
