Ex-Bronco Mike Current dead, was apparently a monster

Former Broncos T Mike Current was found dead this morning at Baskett Slough National Wildlife Refuge in Oregon, killed by an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound.  Denver selected Current in the third round (58th overall) of the 1967 Draft out of Ohio State; he went on to play in 169 NFL games in 13 seasons, spending nine of those years with the Broncos. He made the Pro Bowl as a Bronco in 1969, and he also played for the Dolphins and Buccaneers.

Current, who was 66, had become an author in his post-playing days, and he wrote a memoir of his career titled Rememberin'...Life in the Trenches. Our thoughts at IAOFM go out to Current's family and friends. (via DP)

Update 7:26am ET 1/18/12: It appears society will not be missing Current - he had been accused recently of sexually assaulting several children.
