Alabama Offensive Tackle Dies, ESPN Talks Depth Chart

Alabama offensive tackle Aaron Douglas was found dead early Thursday morning in Fernandina Beach, Fla.

The Worldwide Leader wasted little time pointing out who would benefit the most from Douglas’ death, just two hours after the story broke.

Classy.

UPDATE: 4:49 p.m. ET: ESPN.com executive Rob King apologized for the post. “Apologies for the Rumor Central post related to Aaron Douglas’ tragic death,” King tweeted. “It did not meet ESPN editorial standards and was removed asap.”
