Garrett Reid, the oldest son of Philadelphia Eagles (http://msn.foxsports.com/nfl/team/philadelphia-eagles/67058) 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,'' Shupp said.

The Eagles practiced after gathering for a team prayer, but Andy Reid was not present. Assistants Marty Mornhinweg and Juan Castillo ran the team's walkthrough, and will oversee the Eagles until Reid returns.

The afternoon session Sunday was to go on. However, owner Jeffery Lurie canceled his annual state of the team address that was scheduled for 1 p.m.

''This news is heartbreaking for everyone in the Eagles family,'' Lurie said in a statement. ''Our hearts go out to Andy, his wife, Tammy, and their children.''
No cause of death had been determined.

''What I can tell you is this morning we were contacted by the Lehigh campus police department and (were) requested to respond for the discovery of a deceased male,'' said Northampton County Coroner Zachary Lysek. ''We are conducting an investigation with the cooperation of the Lehigh campus police department and I personally pronounced Mr. Reid deceased at the scene.''

Garrett and his younger brother, Britt, each had drug problems in the past.

Life and death trumps sports, my friend. I felt the need to show respect.

Oh I agree completely. As I said, this is terrible! A parent should never have to live through stuff like this. I was merely pointing out that we had a forum section which was more suitable for the topic.

Are you serious? Unbelievable.

He was not an official Eagle employee. Did you ever think that maybe his dad was simply trying to whatever he could to help out his son. Just like any parent would.

God bless the entire Reid family in this difficult time.

Yea i'm dead serious, i'm not a puppet who goes along with the crowd,I just quoted what the drug dealing THUG said/ bragged to the probation officer about , I wonder how many people did he cripple/ kill by selling them crack, QUOTE... In the midst of his legal troubles, Reid said he "got a thrill" out of being a drug dealer in a lower-income neighborhood just a few miles from his parents' suburban Villanova mansion. "I liked being the rich kid in that area and having my own high-status life," Reid told a probation officer, according to court testimony in November 2007. "I could go anywhere in the `hood. They all knew who I was. I enjoyed it. I liked being a drug dealer." WHERE'S the honor in this? I am entitled to my own opinion

Whenever anybody dies, under circumstances, we should respect friends, family, etc. as best we can. If we are empathetic or not, respect should be given. We should offer respect, or nothing at all. After all, that could be you we are talking about.

Not that anybody in this thread said anything offensive or inconsiderate. For some reason, I felt the need to communicate my thoughts. Too many times I have seen pinheads make dumb comments on the internet in response to tragedy or death. I feel for Mr. Reid and his family. Death will eventually affect is all, remember that.

I remember a particularly poignant epitaph of a young soldier on a tombstone at the graveyard at Gettysburg:

As you are now, I once was. As I am now, you will soon be.

I think that summarizes things nicely.

Yes you certainly are entitled to your own opinion. I'm not sure where you got this puppet thing from or who said that Garrett lead a "Honorable" life.

I was simply shocked and questioned that you brought Roger Goodell into it.

Your opinion made me think of a quote:
