Steve McNair Found Dead

Steve McNair, former quarterback for the Tennessee Titans and Baltimore Ravens, was found shot dead in downtown Nashville, according to a report on ESPN.com.

At the end of the 1999 football season he led the Titans to Super Bowl XXXIV, the only appearance in the franchise's history. McNair orchestrated a last minute drive that came up one yard short of giving the TItans an opportunity to tie the St. Louis Rams. The final score was 23 to 16.

McNair spent 13 seasons in the NFL, his last two with the Ravens. He retired in 2008. He was selected to the Pro Bowl three times and was an NFL co-MVP in 2003. He played for Alcorn State in Mississippi and was the third pick in the 1995 NFL draft.
