The details of the incident are stunning: while on vacation, he was racing his young son to the car (who among us with kids hasn't done that?) when he tripped, fell, and hit his head. He slipped into a coma and died. After growing up in inner-city Baltimore and then playing the most physically punishing team sport at the highest levels of competition for 11 years of his life, that was how he met his maker. Heartbreaking.
Upon retiring from the NFL, he apparently founded a non-profit organization that helped under-privileged families find stable housing. Tragic loss. RIP.
