Tragic news today out of the world of professional sports: Garrett Reid, the son of Philadelphia Eagles Head Coach Andy Reid, was found dead in his room at the club's training camp at Lehigh University. He was 29.

Reid's body was found by local police after a 911 call was placed at 7:20 a.m.

Police chief Edward Shupp says "no suspicious activities" have been reported.

The team gathered for practice this morning, without Andy Reid present, and said a prayer prior to assistant coaches leading the squad through a walk-through.

Garrett and younger brother Britt have each battled substance abuse problems over the years. They were arrested on drug charges after two separate traffic accidents in 2007 and Garrett was in jail off and on in 2009.

"This is a tough morning for all of us in the Eagles family," Eagles general manager Howie Roseman said. "Garrett grew up with this team and this makes this news even harder for us to process."

Andy Reid is a fat disgusting pile of whale shit and his scumbag son died in part because Andy Reid is a reprehensible human being who, as a workaholic who neglected spending time with his family, even as his sons fell further and further into an abyss of misery marked by jail time and hard core drugs . Even now, Andy Reid , who is so self absorbed he doesn't realize that he's possibly as fatas Chris Christie and needs to lose weight stat, has not quit his job to be with his family and redirect his life objectives. What's shocking is that a fat piece of whale dick like Andy Reid is the face of the organization. What a fucking dirtbag .
