May 9 (Bloomberg) -- Stacy Robinson, a wide receiver on the New York Giants’ first two Super Bowl-winning teams, died yesterday at the age of 50.

Robinson, who worked for the National Football League Players Association following his playing career, was diagnosed in 2009 with multiple myeloma, a cancer of the blood. He entered hospice care on May 3, his family said in a statement.

“He was a good man who was loved and respected by his teammates and everyone in this organization,” Giants co-owner John Mara said in an e-mailed statement. His work on behalf of the Players Association was of great benefit to many players. He will be missed.”

Robinson most recently was the NFLPA’s director of player services & development, a position in which he helped players prepare for life in and after professional football.

Robinson was taken by the Giants in the second round of the 1985 NFL draft out of North Dakota State and spent his entire six-year career with the organization.

He appeared in 43 games with the Giants, catching 48 passes for 749 yards and seven touchdowns. When the Giants won their first Super Bowl title after the 1986 season, Robinson caught three passes for a team-high 62 yards in the 39-20 championship-game win over the Denver Broncos.
