The terrible news came across the wire early on Monday that the oldest son of Philadelphia Eagles head coach Andy Reid, Garrett Reid, had passed away, and colleagues around the NFL are offering their sympathy and condolences to Reid in his time of grief and loss. Kansas City Chiefs head coach Romeo Crennel started his daily remarks at training camp with a reflection on the news.
"Even though today is a good day and the sun is shining, sometimes life throws people curve balls, so what happened with Andy [Reid] and his family - just want him to know that our thoughts and prayers are with him as he goes through this difficult time," said Crennel from training camp on Monday. "Andy is a very good man. He's a good man. It's unfortunate that this has happened, but it's part of life. He will move on just like the rest of us have to move on. He'll have to do it in his time to make it happen."
Garrett was found dead in a Lehigh University dorm room, but the cause of death is still unknown.
