My heart breaks for former teammate and friend Quentin Moses and his family. Thoughts, prayers and tears! So sad. Life is too short #RIP— Jason Taylor (@JasonTaylor) February 12, 2017
Moses played four seasons with the Dolphins after being drafted out of the University of Georgia by the Oakland Raiders in the third round of the 2007 NFL Draft, totaling three-and-a-half sacks with 35 tackles while playing both on the defensive line and at linebacker in Miami.
The Dolphins released a statement on Moses stating, "we were deeply saddened to hear about the tragic news involving Quentin Moses. Our thoughts and sincere condolences go out to his family and friends during this difficult time."
