Former Titans general manager and current Patriots senior football advisor Floyd Reese selected McNair third overall in the 1995 NFL Draft. Reese issued this statement on Saturday evening upon learning of McNair's death: <blockquote><em>"I am deeply saddened to learn of today's tragic news regarding the death of Steve McNair. He was a player who I admired a great deal. He was a tremendous leader and an absolute warrior. He felt like it was his responsibility to lead by working hard every day, no matter what. I don't think there was a player who played with him or against him that didn't look up to him and respect him. My heartfelt condolences go out to his family, his friends and the many teammates who loved and admired him."</em></blockquote> ***** <A HREF="http://www.newschannel5.com/Global/story.asp?S=10643962" target="_blank"><b>Steve McNair Found Shot To Death</b></A> [NewsChannel5.com]
