Former Dolphins defensive end/linebacker Quentin Moses died on Sunday morning in a house fire in Monroe, Georgia.

Fire Chief Keith Glass said, via the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, that three people were killed in the fire, including a mother and daughter who were found inside the home. Moses was moved outside the house after being found unconscious, but later died at the hospital. Glass said the roof of the house collapsed as firefighters worked to get the fire under control.

Moses grew up in Georgia and played for the University of Georgia before being selected in the third round of the 2007 draft by the Raiders. Moses was waived before playing a game for the team and wound up in Miami, where he spent four seasons and had 3.5 sacks for the Dolphins.

Our condolences to the families and friends of all those who died on Sunday.

    Being a father of a daughter it really hurts to hear a child was killed in the fire. My deepest condolences go out to the family and everyone effected.

    I could not agree more. Can’t imagine who or why there are thumbs down on this tragedy.

    That’s horrible!! The guy couldn’t have been more than 32, 33 maybe. 😦

    I did a year in jail while I was 33 to 34. I’ll be 50 at the end of the month! That year sucked, (Mr. Obvious), but I’m glad it wasn’t over then!! 🙂

    Life offers many challenges and things that are so revelant to many of us are often under attack this thumb down is one of many in this world. Here is a life that was lived and now lost let’s stay focus and give no energy to things which attack that which is precious as a human life. Remember those who offer negative judgement will also have their moment under the thumb.
