FORT STOCKTON, Texas (AP) -Former NFL center Curtis Whitley has been found dead in his trailer home in West Texas.
The 39-year-old Whitley was found Sunday night in Fort Stockton.
Pecos County Sheriff Cliff Harris said Wednesday that Whitley was found face down in the bathroom by friends who went to check on him after they had not heard from him. Harris said there was no signs of foul play, but the death remains under investigation.
Whitley played for San Diego, Carolina and Oakland from 1992-97 and had two suspensions for violating the league's drug policy.
Whitley's body has been sent to El Paso for an autopsy.
