Missing NFL players lost in the ocean off Florida's coast

Don't know how many people have heard of this story over the past couple days. Just wanted to post to link the story that they are going to call off the search for three of the men lost at sea whose boat overturned in rough weather. Two were NFL players, one was a former college player with the other two at South Florida. One person was recovered thankfully, another former South Florida player.

CLEARWATER, Fla. -- After three days of combing 24,000 miles of ocean, the Coast Guard on Tuesday stopped searching for two NFL players and a third man lost in rough, chilly Gulf of Mexico waters off the Florida coast.

Oakland Raiders linebacker Marquis Cooper, free-agent defensive lineman Corey Smith, who played with the Detroit Lions last season, and former South Florida player William Bleakley, had been missing since Saturday when their boat capsized during a fishing trip.
It's pretty sad that they are calling off the search. Maybe a miracle will happen, but well wishes to the families.

It sucks that they called off the search..but it's probably standard procedure..they've been searching since Sunday.. in an ocean that big..it's just difficult to imagine that they would still be alive after combing 24,000 miles.
