Cullen Finnerty

Finnerty who was one of the most successful Division II quarterbacks of all time and who had brief stints with the Ravens and Broncos went missing during a fishing trip in Michigan.

His body was found by searchers late last night.

The cause of death wasn’t immediately clear, but Robinson said foul play wasn’t suspected. He said the body was not in the water and was found in a wooded area in Webber Township, near the family’s cottage. An autopsy would be needed to determine how Finnerty died, the undersheriff said.

Finnerty last spoke to a family member that night in a phone call in which he said “he was nervous about something,” Sheriff Robert Hilts said earlier Tuesday. Based on that call, the family suspected “he might be having some kind of a mental episode — that he was either afraid or something and ran off into the woods,” Hilts said.

Thoughts and prayers go out to his family.
