Garrett Reid’s body was found at a dorm room at Lehigh University, where the NFL team was holding training camp.

The campus police chief reported no signs of foul play.

Reid had a history of drug abuse, and drug dealing.

ESPN broke the story, and added this said chapter of Reid’s life:

In his early 20s, Garrett Reid said he “got a thrill” out of being a drug dealer in a lower-income neighborhood just a few miles from his parents’ suburban Villanova mansion.

“I liked being the rich kid in that area and having my own high-status life,” Reid told a probation officer, according to court testimony in November 2007. “I could go anywhere in the ‘hood. They all knew who I was. I enjoyed it. I liked being a drug dealer.”

At his sentencing hearing, Garrett Reid told the judge: “I don’t want to die doing drugs. I don’t want to be that kid who was the son of the head coach of the Eagles, who was spoiled and on drugs and OD’d and just faded into oblivion.”
