PORT ORCHARD — The Kitsap County coroner says football player Tony Fein died of an accidental drug overdose.
Coroner Greg Sandstrom says toxicology tests showed “acute opiate intoxication.” The Kitsap Sun reports Wednesday that Fein is believed to have taken morphine and Alprazolam, a drug used to treat anxiety.
Fein collapsed Oct. 6 at a friend’s house near Port Orchard and died at Harrison Medical Center in Bremerton.
The 27-year-old from Port Orchard was an Army veteran who served in Iraq. The linebacker was an undrafted rookie free agent from the University of Mississippi who played for the Seattle Seahawks and Baltimore Ravens in the preseason.
