Jeremy Maclin posts on Instagram about the death of a friend

KC Chiefs WR Jeremy Maclin posted on Instagram about the recent death of a longtime friend. The friend’s name is Isaiah Mares, who was described a few years ago by Maclin as his best friend growing up.

Maclin’s Instagram post reads:

I don't even know where to begin...this hurts. For 18 yrs he was by my side thru everything. He seen me at my worst and my best. One of the most selfless ppl I've ever had the privilege of knowing. I'm sorry we didn't get to talk or see each other over the last couple of years but you will always be my brother. Rest easy Zay. I love you bro. #RIP

Maclin missed practice last Thursday for personal reasons.
