So sad…my deepest condolences to his friends, teammates and family.

MBIII arguably had one of the greatest 3 yd runs in NFL history when he was knocked back into his own end zone against the Patriots and escaped 5-6 tackles.

Friends and teammates had expressed concerns about his mental health.

The worst part is that even with possible congenital or injury-related mental issues, you can’t help someone unless they want to be helped. “Help” in the person’s mind turns into denial or paranoia and the person often turns to self medication or worse. It’s a viscous cycle.

I remember the thread related to the tweet by Dez below on here awhile back. Those that knew, knew I guess. Despite the assumed help, It’s too bad nothing resonated with him. RIP MBIII.

That may have been the greatest backfield ever for the Gophers.
Also, too often forgotten, it was a thing of beauty in 2003 with Thomas Tapeh at fullback opening up holes for Maroney and Barber.

I’d be shocked if we don’t come to learn that he suffered with CTE…..

RIP
