Former Tennessee Titans kicker Rob Bironas was driving erratically just before he was killed in the crash of his SUV, a woman told a 911 dispatcher.

Bironas, 36, died Saturday night in Nashville. Police said he was speeding when he lost control in a curve and that there was no evidence of alcohol or drugs at the scene.

The 911 call was obtained Monday by several media outlets.

The woman told the dispatcher neither she nor her husband recognized the man who drove up behind them. She said he pulled his SUV up beside their vehicle and gave them a look before speeding away. The woman told the dispatcher the man was dangerous and police needed to know something was wrong with him.

''We let him go on past us because he was trying to run me off the road and we don't know who he was,'' the woman told the dispatcher.

A Metro Nashville police spokesman says the accident investigation is ongoing. An autopsy was performed.

The Tennessean reported Monday night Bironas' wife reported him missing to police Saturday night.

The Titans released Bironas in March after nine seasons. Bironas worked out for Tampa Bay during the offseason and worked out last week for the Detroit Lions, who announced Monday they plan to sign former Eagles kicker Alex Henery.

Bironas married Rachel Bradshaw, daughter of Pro Football Hall of Fame quarterback Terry Bradshaw, in June.
