The Coast Guard has stopped its search as of Tuesday for the 2 missing NFL players and a third man. Oakland Raiders linebacker Marquis Cooper, free-agent defensive lineman Corey Smith, and former South Florida player William Bleakley, had been missing since Saturday when they embarked on a fishing trip. The incident occurred in near the Gulf of Mexico and one man was actually rescued. The 24-year old Nick Schuyler, as of now, is the lone survivor from the fishing trip. The Coast Guard has been searching for 3 days and 24,000 miles of the ocean for the other missing men. The boat capsized and Schuyler was found clinging to the boat but no signs of the other men. There was a cooler and lifejacket that was found 16 miles from the boat. Families and friends have come together to embrace and find ways they can help.
