That's sad,...I'll never forget when as a rookie, Claridge pulled on a goal line play for a score in a loss to the Rams in 2000. Travis pulled and knocked that trash talking London Fletcher into the next State,...and it was funny because for the rest of the game Fletcher wasn't doing the smakdown like he was before that awesome block.

Condolences to the Claridges.

Holy crap... I went to high school with him! I was shocked when the Falcons drafted him and even more shocked now that he has died. Wow. I'm speechless.

Condolences to the Claridges indeed.

Claridge didn't exact leave us with warm fuzzy memories over his play here, but it is a bit jarring to hear of his death. Especailly someone that was still at age 27 in their life's prime.
