Tampa Bay Buccaneers star Shaquil Barrett’s 2-year-old daughter has passed away. She drowned in the family’s pool.
Arrayah drowned on Sunday morning, according to reports in Tampa, Florida, at the family’s south Tampa home. Tampa police were called to the home right before 9:30 am for a child, who had fallen into the pool.
The authorities and first responders arrived to give life saving medical attention. However, a short time later, Arrayah had passed away.
Tampa police believe this was a tragic accident.
“Today’s tragic news is heartbreaking for all members of the Buccaneers family,” the Buccaneers said in a statement. “Our thoughts and prayers are with Shaq, Jordanna, and the entire Barrett family during this unimaginably difficult time.
“While no words can provide true comfort at a time such as this, we offer our support and love as they begin to process this very profound loss of their beloved Arrayah.”
The 30-year-old linebacker has been with the Buccaneers since the 2019 season. He began his career with the Denver Broncos.
Barrett’s 2022 season came to an end during a Week 8 game against the Baltimore Ravens. He suffered a torn Achilles in the contest.
On the season, he appeared in eight games. He had 31 tackles, including six tackles for a loss and six quarterback hits. He also had three sacks and one forced fumble.
Barrett and Jordanna have been married since 2012. The couple have three children together.© 2007-2023 The Capital Sports Report. All Rights Reserved. This material may not be published, broadcasted, rewritten, or redistributed.
