NFL player O.J. Murdock who played for the Tennessee Titans committed suicide this morning in front of a Tampa High School he graduated from. He was only 25 years old.

According to reports, Murdock was found in his car at 8:30 a.m. with a self-inflicted gun shot wound.  He was transported to Tampa Hospital.

Murdock died around 2 hours later.

Murdock did not report to Titans training camp last week but was excused by head coach Mike Munchak for "personal reasons."

At this time, we do not know what his personal reasons were but we will update as soon as we know.

This follows after former NFL star Junior Seau committed suicide as well with a shot to his stomach, like Murdock, instead of his head.-DocFB
