New York Jets kicker Jay Feely posted comments on Twitter about the death of Chris Henry that offended more than a handful of people.
“Chris Henry seemed to have turned his life around. But, you can’t live on the brink of destruction without inevitably falling off the ledge,” Feely wrote.
Perhaps after hearing strong feedback he would later clarify his comments in another tweet.
“Maybe I did a poor job of expressing my sympathy while trying to look at the bigger picture of why this happened and how to avoid in future,” read Feely’s second post.
