Former San Francisco 49ers offensive tackle Keith Fahnhorst died at the age of 66 on Tuesday, according to a release from the team.
Fahnhorst was a second-round pick of the 49ers in 1974 and spent his entire 14-year NFL career with the franchise. He was a two-time first-team All-Pro (1983, 1984) and was named to the Pro Bowl in 1985. He was also a member of the 49ers’ two Super Bowl championship teams in 1980’s.
On behalf of our son and my husband, we want to reiterate our love, support and affection for him during this difficult process, his wife, Janelle, and father, Winslow Sr., said.
Winslow was drafted in 2004 and played 10 seasons in the NFL. He had a short stint with the New York Jets in 2013.
The context was a bit out of kilter: Sam Darnold, the Jets’ first-round draft pick and hopeful franchise-quarterback ticket to a first Super Bowl nearly 50 years, roaming the U.S. Open grounds Saturday at Shinnecock Hills.
Upshaw was a 2012 second-round pick by the Ravens and spent four years in Baltimore before moving on to the Falcons for the last two seasons. He appeared in 13 games last season and played 197 defensive snaps while recording nine tackles, a sack and a forced fumble.
Jones signed with the Jets as a sixth-year veteran free agent on June 5. He was drafted by Houston in the sixth round in 2013 and spent time on the rosters of the Buccaneers, Patriots, Dolphins and 49ers.
He saw most of his action as a defensive lineman and special teamer with New England in 2013-14, playing 28 games with 22 starts.
CAA did not return a call for comment. After an apology, Allen was eventually selected by the Buffalo Bills as the seventh overall pick in the draft.
In the end, he was lucky that his career wasn’t totally trashed. But Cuban points out that even tweeting less incendiary statements can come back to bite anyone. The reality of anything digital is: The minute you hit send or post, you no longer control the message.
It’s an old business adage: Don’t ask me to do for you what I wouldn’t do to you.
