Steve McNair Ex NFL Quarterback Found Shot to Death

FoxNews reports that ex NFL quarterback Steve McNair and a woman were found dead Saturday in a Nashville condominium in an apparent double homicide. McNair was 36 years old.

A public information officer with the Nashville police, Don Aaron, confirmed the death. No further information has been released.

Titans owner Bud Adams also confirmed the quarterback’s death in a brief statement released Saturday.

Adams called him “one of the finest players to play for our organization and one of the most beloved players by our fans. He played with unquestioned heart and leadership and led us to places that we had never reached, including our only Super Bowl.”

McNair played 11 seasons in the NFL with the Tennessee Titans franchise and then spent two seasons with the Baltimore Ravens.

He was a three-time Pro Bowler and was the Co-AP NFL MVP in 2003.

McNair played in the “Music City Miracle” game in 1999, when his Titans stunned the Buffalo Bills with a kickoff return touchdown in the final seconds in their AFC Wild Card playoff game.

McNair led the Titans to the Super Bowl that season, where they lost to the Rams. With the Titans driving for a potential game-tying score in the fourth quarter, McNair completed a pass to Kevin Dyson in the closing moments but Dyson was stopped at the 1-yard line.
