A pair of former Eagles quarterbacks expressed their sympathies upon hearing about the death of Andy Reid‘s son, Garrett.
“I was both shocked and saddened when I heard the news this morning of Garrett’s passing,” said Donovan McNabb in a statement. “During my time [in Philadelphia], both Garrett and Britt spent a lot of time around the football team and I know how much Andy loves them. I spent a lot of time with Andy and his family; we had a great friendship…we still do. My heart goes out to Andy, Tammy and the rest of the Reid family. I cannot imagine what they are feeling right now. God be with them.”
“Anyone that’s been around Andy for any amount of time knows how important family is and how much his kids mean to him. This is devastating news. My heart goes out to Andy and Tammy. My thoughts and prayers are with all of them right now.”
There has been an outpouring of support for Reid and his family in the NFL community. Here is a link to some of that reaction.
