This breaks my heart man! Air McNair was absolutely relentless on the football field... He is definately my favorite quarterback of all time. Just might have to throw on the #9 jersey for old time sake...
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP)â€”Former NFL quarterback Steve McNair(notes) has been shot and killed.
Nashville police spokesman Don Aaron confirmed that police were called to a residence and found McNair and a woman shot to death inside. Aaron said authorities donâ€™t yet know the circumstances of the shooting.
â€œI donâ€™t have any answers for you now as to whatâ€™s happened, whoâ€™s responsible,â€ he said.
Aaron said police have tentatively identified the woman but did not release her name.
McNair played 13 seasons in the NFL and led the Titans within a yard of forcing overtime in the 2000 Super Bowl. The former third overall draft pick also played for the Baltimore Ravens before retiring after the 2007 season.
â€œHe was one of the finest players to play for our organization and one of the most beloved players by our fans,â€ Titans owner Bud Adams said in a statement. â€œHe played with unquestioned heart and leadership and led us to places that we had never reached, including our only Super Bowl.â€
