This is just incredibly tragic, and there’s not really much else that can be said. Vincent Jackson was a standout receiver for several years with the Chargers and Buccaneers.

During his prime, he was one of the best receivers in the league.

Now, at the age of 38, it’s all over, and we don’t really seem to know why. Given the police investigation, it would seem like this is a serious situation.

Star athletes aren’t supposed to be dying so young. They’re in great shape and should be preparing for life after football.

Keep checking back for more details as we have them, and our thoughts and prayers are with his family during this terribly difficult time.
