31-year-old James Hardy III, former wide receiver for the Buffalo Bills, was found dead in an Indiana River Wednesday.
His body was found in a log jam in the Maumee River. Authorities were called after a water filtration plant employee spotted him.
According to TMZ, Hardy had been in the water for days. Hardy’s family had reported him missing on May 30, and authorities are still investigating his disappearance and death.
Hardy had been committed to a mental institution after he was arrested in 2014 for attacking a police officer. Despite the fact that he struggled after his NFL career ended, his friends and family remember him as a kind, generous man.
