It was obviously a shock to current Eagles players to find out that Andy Reid’s son, Garrett, who was staying in the same dorms where the entire team was staying for training camp, was found dead. Many of those current Eagles players couldn’t help but let their feelings be known publicly, so went to Twitter.
In addition a number of former Eagles players also ventured to Twitter to let everyone know how they felt the passing of Reid’s eldest son.
Heart is extremely heavy right now for the Reid family.
