Former NFL Player James Hardy Found Dead In Indiana River

Former 2008 2nd round NFL draft pick James Hardy’s body was found floating in a river in Indiana yesterday afternoon at age 31 according to TMZ.

A city water filtration employee found his body near a jammed up area of the Maumee River. Early reports say it appears that Hardy had been floating in the water for several days.

His family says that he had been reported missing since May 30.

No word on what exactly might have happened, but Hardy had some pretty serious problems once his playing days were over. In 2014 he was popped for catching fade with a couple of cops, and was subsequently committed to a mental hospital.

We’ll definitely have more information once it becomes available. Something happened here and it feels real shady.
