The two-year-old son of former Philadelphia Eagles
quarterback Randall Cunningham
drowned in a hot tub at Cunningham's house in Las Vegas Tuesday, ABC affiliate
Police said the death appears to be an accident and no charges are expected to be filed, according to KTNV-TV.
Cunningham moved to Las Vegas after his 2002 retirement from the NFL
. Cunningham played for the University of Nevada Las Vegas before being drafted in 1985 by Philadelphia, where he remained through the 1995 season. He worked as a television sports analyst for one year before returning to the field as quarterback with stints with the Minnesota Vikings
, Dallas Cowboys
, Baltimore Ravens
and his final season with the Eagles.
In Las Vegas, Cunningham is pastor and founder of Remnant Ministries Church.
The Las Vegas Review Journal reported that his son, Christian Cunningham would have turned 3 in December. Cunningham and his wife, Felicity, have three other children: Randall II, Vashti and Grace.
Cunningham created a stir with Eagles fans in 1995 when he announced he might have to miss a major playoff game because it was the due date of his first child. Randall II arrived after the game so Cunningham did not miss the game. However, he did not play. Rodney Peete
delivered the win against the Detroit Lions
Last year, Cunningham became the offensive coordinator for the high school football team in Las Vegas where Randall II was the freshman quarterback.
