Body of former NFL player James Hardy found in Indiana river

Michael Joyner, FWPD Public Information Officer, said an employee with the City's water Filtration Plant conducting his regular rounds made the discovery as he walked along the catwalk and called police.

The body is thought to have been in the river a few days.

According to NBC's Fort Wayne affiliate, Hardy was reported missing by his family weeks ago.

It was the tragic end of a troubled post-football life for the 33-year-old.

The case is still under investigation and this story will continue to be updated. The Bills issued a brief statement on Twitter following the news of the former player being discovered. We bring for you some details from the late footballer James Hardy's wiki. "Our thoughts and prayers are with his loved ones during this hard time".

Hardy, a Fort Wayne, Ind. native, starred for the Hoosiers from 2004-07.

He is a former Elmhurst High School and Indiana University star receiver. During his time at IU he played for the IU football team and was a member of the IU basketball team for two seasons. He appeared in only 23 games and averaged 1.7 points per game. "I think there was a loyalty there that was pretty special".

Hardy spent two years in the National Football League after the Bills drafted him in the second round in 2008 after playing at Indiana University. After making just 10 catches over his first two years, he was released before the start of the 2010 season, hindered by leg injuries.

The Rumblings staff offers our condolences to Hardy's family and friends during this hard time.

Hardy signed a futures contract with the Baltimore Ravens in January of 2011, but he was released after chronic hamstring problems plagued him throughout training camp.

In 2014, Hardy was arrested after a confrontation with three cops from the Los Angeles Police Department.

Condolences to his family and friends.
