Arizona Cardinals safety Tyrann Mathieu apparently knows the man who shot and killed former New Orleans Saints defensive end Will Smith early this morning and took to Twitter to call the man out for his actions.
The alleged killer is 28-year-old Cardell Hayes, a former prep star in Louisiana who was booked today on a charge of second-degree murder. Reports state that he and Smith got into an argument over a fender-bender and that he shot Smith out of road rage. Smith’s wife, Racquel, was also shot and injured at the scene.
But Mathieu was not done yet and started tweeting about the cultural reasons for Smith’s death.
Clearly, Mathieu is hurting from Smith’s murder along with the rest of the football community. Smith was a beloved member of the Saints and helped lead New Orleans to a Super Bowl in 2009, and also won a championship at Ohio State.
Simply put, this one is going to sting for a while.
