Carr addressed the situation with the media Wednesday, and it was clear from his tone and body language that he’s struggling with the situation.

The most heartbreaking comment from Carr was when he asked himself if there was more he could have done to help make sure this didn’t happen.

Imagine having such a kind heart that when your teammate allegedly kills someone in a DUI crash, you blame yourself for not doing enough.

I don’t know much about Carr as a person, but he seems like a very genuine dude. He seems so shattered over the fact his former teammate might spend years behind bars after allegedly killing a person.

I can promise you I would be a lot angrier and show a lot less grace.

The entire situation is incredibly tragic, and there’s no other way to put it. A young woman is dead and a young man with a promising future might be headed to prison.

Don’t drink and drive, folks. It’s just not worth it.
