SJ - May 30, 2022

Cardinals cornerback Jeff Gladney, a former Vikings first-round pick, died early Monday morning in a car accident in Dallas.  He was just 25.

Gladney's agent Brian Overstreet confirmed the news asking for prayers and privacy.  "We are asking prayers for the family and privacy at this most difficult time," Overstreet said.

As did his best friend, Eagles wide receiver Jalen Reagor, who sent out a tweet about Gladney's untimely death.

Gladney sat out the 2021 season and was cut by Minnesota after he was charged with felony assault.  He was found not guilty in March and signed with Arizona shortly after.

RIP.  You hate hearing about loss of life, especially when someone so young is involved.
