R.I.P. Chris Mortensen

A long time well-connected NFL reporter, one of the old school journalists who wanted to be right, not necessarily first.

His Deflategate tweet however proved to be incorrect, hopefully he will be remembered for more than that.


Chris Mortensen was one of the few remaining excellent employees at ESPN. Wow will he be missed.

Wow, I did not know he had fought off throat cancer for 8 years too.


Cancer is a nasty disease . RIP Chris Mortensen . May your memory be a blessing .
