The Broncos had to deal with a distraction last night.
Today, they’re dealing with heartbreak.
According to Mark Kiszla of the Denver Post, Broncos defensive lineman Antonio Smith found out this morning that his 55-year-old father died.
“It’s rough. I just found out this morning,” Smith said. “It was my mom who called and told me. The call came in at about 6:30.”
Marty Christopher Williams, 55, has been in prison for more than two decades, and died as a result of complications from heart surgery.
Williams said he planned to stay with the team and plans to play in Sunday’s Super Bowl.
