Two NFL players have been missing in the Gulf of Mexico after heading out for a fishing trip on Saturday. Raiders player Marquis Cooper and former Detroit Lions player Corey Smith along with two other men had left shore on Saturday morning but failed to return Saturday evening causing Coopers wife, Rebekah to alert the coastguard. Cooper had originally planned to go fishing on Sunday but due to bad weather conditions had changed the date of the trip to Saturday.
The coastguard are still searching for the four men and the 21foot boat they went out on.
