During his visit, Clarett spoke about the death of his former teammate Will Smith. The former New Orleans Saint was gunned down Sunday during an apparent confrontation with another driver.

Clarett said he still in disbelief about Smith’s death.

“When you are talking to someone who knows him, it still feels unbelievable,” Clarett said.

Clarett said if there’s anything to take away from the incident is that there are better ways to resolve conflict.

Clarett and Smith were both on the 2002 National Championship team.
