De’ Ja Vu for the NFL’s Denver Broncos, who for the third time in the last four years, are dealing with the death of a teammate. Kenny McKinley, a 5th-round draft pick of Denver in 2009 out of South Carolina, was found dead by a female aquaintance, a death that authorities are ruling a suicide.
Police believe McKinley died as a result of a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head. Team officials could not offer any answers and the investigation into McKinley’s death is on-going. McKinley had been on the team’s injured reserve list and had not yet played this season.
