2 NFL players missing at sea off Tampa Bay

Developing story from our friends over at Yahoo! Sports.  Lions DE Corey Smith and Raider LB Marquis Cooper are missing off the coast of Clearwater.  They left Saturday morning on a fishing expedition on a 21-foot boat, along with 2 other individuals, and have not returned as expected.  The Coast Guard has conducted a 750-square mile search by helicopter and boat, but to no avail so far.  It was rough weather here in Tampa Bay this morning, but not yesterday. Godspeed gentlemen.... may you return home safely.

Kudos to Lions Nation for the FanPost bringing out the info.
