Default McKinley found dead, 23

Terrible terrible news. Thoughts and prayers go out to his family. Especially sad considering Lynch and Baily were at a fundraiser for D-Will.

Very sad to be at the pinninacle of your career and yet think you have no other options but to kill yourself.

RIP Kenny, I hope his family finds peace.

The Broncos are actually going through lengths right now to make sure people don't find that out.

Those foreigners are making your grammar retarded.

They aren't "going to great lengths" to cover anything up. They are asking people consider the feelings of his families and allow a period of grieving before they talk about how he chose to kill himself and why out of respect for the dead.

Broncos to honor McKinley at game Sunday
By Mike Klis

Broncos coach Josh McDaniels said his team will honor Kenny McKinley during this week's game. (Reza A. Marvashti, The Denver Post)

Broncos coach Josh McDaniels said his team will honor Kenny McKinley during this week's game. (Reza A. Marvashti, The Denver Post)

The Broncos will carry the spirit of Kenny McKinley with them to their game Sunday against the Indianapolis Colts at Invesco Field at Mile High.

Each Bronco player will wear a decal with McKinley’s No. 11 on their helmet. The franchise will also hold a moment of silence prior to the game. The players also decided in their team meeting this morning to keep McKinley’s locker in place.

Josh McDaniels was twice overcome with emotion as he addressed McKinley’s death during his press conference Tuesday.

“We’ve had two draft classes here in two years … ” McDaniels said before pausing to collect himself. “I’m not sure any one of the kids enjoyed the phone call any more than Kenny did.”

McKinley, a receiver from South Carolina, was the Broncos’ fifth-round draft pick in 2009. He was found dead Monday afternoon with an apparent self-inflicted gun wound to the head.


hope he finds peace in the after life that he couldn't find here
it wont let me post this a separate post
RIP Kenny McKinley

Suicide has always struck me as a terribly sad way for a person to go--it takes a deep loneliness to go through with it. For such a young talented person to take his life, I can only imagine the pain he must have felt. I wish he had felt there were people close enough to help him through this.

A sad day indeed for all his friends and family. I hope he has found some peace.

Man you think highly of yourself. I'm a new user here who ran into you on the other broncos message board when you came over complaining about your amazing tc reports were posted without your permission.

Really you're just someone who is offensive and an all around terrible person and I thought at least in a thread about someone else you could quit thinking about yourself. But clearly you can't.

Sorry this thread got derailed by your inability to react to anything contrary to your viewpoint without vulgar hostility. You should go to the weight room and take notes on who is pissing you off and post it here. That might make you feel better.
