He was 58-years-old.

Obviously, this is an incredibly tragic situation, and there’s nothing else that really can be said. Knapp leaves behind his family, friends and an entire NFL organization.

To call it a tragedy doesn’t even begin to sum up the situation facing those he leaves behind.

Hopefully, the Jets surround his family with an overwhelming amount of love and compassion. In a time like this, there’s really not much else you can do.

Our thoughts and prayers are with Knapp’s family, his friends and everyone with the Jets organization. It’s just a terribly sad and brutal situation.
