    Man, that’s pretty young. There seems to be a bunch of football players dying relatively early.

    My condolences to his family and friends. That’s frighteningly young. What was the cause of death?

    Best wishes to the family. It’s a terrible loss.
    Hard to avoid guessing that the cause will be cardiac arrest, though.

    When an NFL Player dies at 45, it would be a good idea to include the cause of death or state that it is unknown. This information is relevant considering all the talk about long term health concerns for players. It would also be good to make sure the link to the story works properly and doesn’t point to a page not found message.

    This is a real shame. I feel for his family. RIP.
    Now let’s get back to the usual ignorant banter please. It’s not right having a thread on this site without it.
