BETHLEHEM, Pa. (AP) -- Garrett Reid, the oldest son of Philadelphia Eagles coach Andy Reid, was found dead Sunday morning in his room at the club's training camp at Lehigh University. He was 29.
The police chief at Lehigh, Edward Shupp, said a 911 call was made at 7:20 a.m., and that Garrett Reid was deceased upon a policeman's arrival at the campus dormitory.
"There were no suspicious activities," said Shupp, who said a cause of death had not been determined

Well, if he was drafted to be a guard, then I'd say his career was decent. However, he was drafted to be a franchise LT and in that aspect, he was a huge bust.

Oh dear. My thoughts go out to Andy Reid on this one, parents are never supposed to outlive their children. He's going to have some tough days ahead.
Is this the same son that had all those drug problems? Shame it's ended this way. I feel for Andy and his family.

One of the greatest competitors the game has ever seen. Of course it's only natural he retire, having competed and played the game at its' highest level while also receiving a Super Bowl ring in the span of 4 seasons. There's nothing left for him to accomplish now, and without a doubt we'll be hearing about him in 5 years when his name comes up for a certain distinction, which will be him being broke and penniless after his modeling career goes south. Godspeed Devin Thomas.

This sounds pretty brutal.

He faces a long road to recovery, but it'll be a great story if he can come back from this.

Three 2nd round picks. To think who we could have drafted with those picks with the Shanny regime. Should have been three starters for us, instead we're left with a question mark made out of weed. F. Davis seems like he'll stick around if he doesn't become Ricky Williams.

Is he really doing that? Because if he is, I certainly can't hate on that.

Devin Thomas the most wasted 2nd round draft choice in Redskins history retires on top. He even gets to have a ring before he calls it quits. Man, I think less and less of Vinny Cerrato every time I hear about news like this.

Truly so. Let the cOuntdown begin- 4 years till Canton. Drafted in the 2nd round by respected and adored former GM VCerrato (known for his playful chuckling (and never cackling) laugh and amazing eye for talent). Idk what else to say just great guys doing great stuff.

Oh I forgot 2 things:
VCerrato the reason of the 49ers success and even the reason they won super bowls before he even worked for team.
DThomas, able to carry his team thru the season and into the super bowl all on his back.
