Sad day in the AFC West

Former AFC West stalwart Chester McGlockton died Wednesday at the age of 42.

McGlockton played for the Raiders, Chiefs and the Broncos. He was an assistant coach at Stanford at the time of his death.

McGlockton is most known for being a Raider. He was the No. 16 overall pick of the 1992 draft and he spent six seasons with the Raiders. He made all four of his Pro Bowls while with the Raiders. He then played three seasons in Kansas City and then two seasons in Denver. The only season in his 12-year NFL career than wasn’t spent in the AFC West was with the Jets in 2003.

The last time I saw McGlockton was when he visited a Raiders’ minicamp in 2008 while he was on the staff of a Bay Area junior college team. He looked good and happy. My condolences go out to the McGlockton family.
