PORT ORCHARD, Wash. (CBS/AP) Baltimore Ravens hopeful and Iraq War veteran Tony Fein has died in Washington State, according to an agent for the player. The cause of death for the 27-year-old is not yet known.
Agent Milton D. Hobbs told The Baltimore Sun that Fein died Tuesday in Port Orchard, Wash., but he had no immediate details about his death.
The undrafted rookie free agent was released by the Ravens in their final major cutdown on Sept. 5. In two seasons at Ole Miss, Fein had 136 tackles (77 solo) in 24 games, according to the Ravens Web site.
Fein also had some trouble in his past. He was arrested on Aug. 23 and charged with misdemeanor assault on a police officer after an incident at a restaurant at Baltimore's Inner Harbor. Fein said he was innocent.
Hobbs says Fein, a native of Port Orchard, was working out in Washington while awaiting another shot at playing football.
