“It was very shocking,” Blaylock told the AJC at the time, “especially when you’re with a team that long and you think you’re one of the guys that’s going to be around and you’re going to end your career there. But that’s part of the business. I know that’s how it goes.”Among others reacting to Friday's news on Twitter was former longtime Hawks public relations official Arthur Triche, who posted, “Difficult emotions right now. Thinking of the families...”
Blaylock's twin sons, Daron and Zack, are safeties on the University of Kentucky football team.
