Sports News Without Access, Favor, Or Discretion

Earlier this afternoon, Jay Glazer passed along news about a Cleveland Browns employee's apparent suicide at a team facility on the same day Javon Belcher took his girlfriend's life before taking his own—also at his team's facility.


Since then, it's been discovered that Eric Eucker, a 30-year-old groundskeeper for the Cleveland Browns, was found dead at the team's facility Saturday morning. The Cuyahoga County Medical Examiner office confirmed that they were called to the Browns facility Saturday when a body was found hanging in an equipment shed.

The Browns released a short statement earlier in the day.

"This is a terrible tragedy and our heartfelt condolences go out to Eric's family. Eric was a good friend and colleague, and an outstanding employee. He will be missed by everyone in the Cleveland Browns organization[.]"
