Zach Randolph was a star player in Marion and now plays for the Sacramento Kings.
Authorities didn’t immediately say whether they believe Randolph’s death and the fire are related.
Middle linebacker Mason Foster has re-signed with the Washington Redskins.
The team announced the deal on Thursday.
Foster went on injured reserve in late October and had surgery on his right shoulder.
He had been playing with a torn labrum in his shoulder since the first half of Washington’s victory over the Los Angeles Rams in Week 2. Foster sealed that win with an interception.
In a series of tweets when he was put on IR, Foster appeared to criticize some in the organization for the handling of his injury. He posted a message saying business is business and ”they don’t care about us Mike McGlinchey Color Rush Jersey ,” while defending coaches, trainers and teammates and adding that former general manager Scot McCloughan ”wouldn’t have done me like that.”
Foster joined the Redskins as a free agent in Week 4 of the 2015 season.
