wow. reading that article, he died, at age 43, from complications arising out of sleep apnea. I am myself 46 yrs old and and I also suffer from sleep apnea. scary stuff.
RIP reggie. You were a great player and no doubt a good person

The real tragedy is that sleep apnea can easily be controlled. I use a C-PAP machine. That's just a mask that fits over my mouth and nose. The machine forces a stream of air through the mouth and throat, insuring that there is a constant and unterrupted flow of air through the body. Sleep apnea is a dangerous, slient killer if not addressed.

Maybe Reggie didnt use it last night. bummer

He was one of my favorite players when I was a kid. I had a poster of him lined up in a stance, and it read "Minister of Defense". Awesome player too, he got the sack record in a lot less games than Bruce Smith.

This is horrible news. He definately was a great player and died way too young. R.I.P Reggie.

He will be dearly missed by everyone in the NFL community. White was one of the premeier defensive backs in NFL history.

RIP.

The Lord must have wanted his Reverend Reggie early. I feel for his family at this time of year, They will never feel the same about the holidays again.

Even as a Lions fan, I always respected his game. It's terrible to lose such a great player, and such a great person and leader at an early age. RIP Reggie.

You know what really sucks beside him dying? He was only 1 year away from being eligible for the NFL Hall of Fame.

everything happens for a reason.

maybe whatever greater power had better plans, or in some football game in the sky, they needed a pass rusher.

who knows.

All we can really say is, keep swimming, swatting, and bull-rushing, and we will see you when we get wherever you are.

RIP.

Had he not come back to play that year at Carolina, he would have been in the HoF last year. the NFL said they were not going to waive the rule to let him in early... but you can garauntee he will be first ballot voting in the HoF.
