Player’s killing not headline news in 1976 



December 2, 2007

In 1974, Blenda Gay served the Chargers as a defensive end, playing in only two games but scoring a touchdown in one on a fumble recovery. Two years later, he was dead, his wife having slit his throat while he was sleeping. His death was not a matter of interest comparable to the murder of Sean Taylor of the Washington Redskins in his Miami-area home or the killing of Darrent Williams of the Denver Broncos on Jan. 1 in a drive-by shooting.

Google News dredged up this interesting item.
