Titans Receiver O.J. Murdock Commits Suicide

Titans wide receiver O.J. Murdock was found suffering from a suspected self-inflicted gunshot wound early this morning, according to Tampa police. He was in his car parked in front of his high school, where he was an all-county and all-state player in 2005. He was transported to the hospital, where he died about an hour ago.

Murdock, out of Fort Hays State, was signed as an undrafted free agent by Tennessee last summer, and missed the entire 2011 season with an Achilles injury. He had yet to appear at training camp due to "personal reasons," though coach Mike Munchak said yesterday there was a good chance he would report today.


Murdock was 25.
