ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — Some of his former Denver Broncos teammates say they're saddened by revelations about the depth of wide receiver Kenny McKinley's financial and personal problems leading up to his suicide.

Friends and family told authorities during a probe into his death in September that McKinley had a gambling problem, was deep in debt and had talked with three people about killing himself.

The investigative report obtained by The Associated Press also revealed that McKinley committed suicide with a gun he had purchased months earlier from teammate Jabar Gaffney. Gaffney declined to comment Thursday.
