A Cleveland Browns employee was found dead of apparent hanging in a maintenance shed at the team's practice facility Saturday, a Cuyahoga County Medical Examiner spokesman told NFL.com.
The Browns confirmed Sunday that assistant groundskeeper Eric Eucker had died.
"This is a terrible tragedy, and our heartfelt condolences go out to Eric's family," the Browns said in a statement obtained by NFL.com reporter Albert Breer. "Eric was a good friend and colleague, and an outstanding employee. He will be missed by everyone in the Cleveland Browns organization."@greggrosenthal.
