Cleveland Browns groundskeeper commits suicide

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."

The Browns are in Oakland this weekend to face the Raiders. We send our thoughts and condolences to everyone affected in the Browns family.
