the good die young.

Bronco cornerback and punt returner Darrent Williams was killed early this morning in a drive-by shooting, cutting short a career on the rise and, according to ESPN, someone trying to fight gang influence in his hometown of Fort Worth, Texas. Two years in the league, and while he hadn't quite developed into a top corner, he was showing flashes of good stuff. A few more years with Champ Bailey, and who knows.


(Update, 7:23 pm - Likely more via the AP than ESPN, but this piece has more details, noting that the party was for Nuggets' forward Kenyon Martin's b-day, and recalls last year's shooting of Nuggets forward Julius Young.)
