Former NFL quarterback Jared Lorenzen has died at the age of 38.
The Lorenzen family confirmed last week that Jared was in intensive care as a result of an infection and kidney and heart issues.
"The family of Jared Lorenzen would like to extend our sincere thanks and appreciation for all of your support and prayers over the past six days," Lorenzen’s family said in a statement to Matt Jones of Kentucky Sports Radio.
"We are deeply saddened to announce the passing of Jared today, July 3, 2019. Again, we appreciate all of the warm wishes and prayers, but as a family, we would request your respect and privacy. We will offer arrangement information in the coming days. Please keep Jared's family and especially his children in your thoughts and prayers."
