Another tragedy was reported by FOX’s Jay Glazer this morning on the FOX NFL Sunday pregame show. Eric Eucker, a member of the Browns grounds crew, committed suicide in a storage shed at the team’s facilities in Berea yesterday morning, around the same time as the Jovan Belcher incident in Kansas City.
The Browns issued the statement below:
“This is a terrible tragedy and our heartfelt condolences go out to Eric’s family. Eric was a good friend and colleague, and an outstanding employee. He will be missed by everyone in the Cleveland Browns organization.”
