Titans Star Caleb Farley’s Father Killed In Explosion At His Home: REPORT

Editor’s note: This article has been updated with the latest information regarding the explosion.

A massive explosion at a North Carolina home belonging to Tennessee Titans defensive back Caleb Farley left Farley’s father dead and another individual injured, according to TMZ Sports.

One person who was recovered from the scene died, while another was sent to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries, Iredell County Fire Marshal’s Office spokesperson Kent Greene told TMZ Sports. The outlet later reported the unnamed deceased victim was Farley’s father, Robert Farley.

Multiple reports state Caleb Farley just recently purchased the home, and overnight Monday, the multi-million dollar property in Mooresville was leveled. Caleb himself was not a victim, according to Greene.

Greene also told TMZ that an investigation is currently ongoing, with the centerpiece of the probe being the house’s natural gas lines.

The 24-year-old Titans cornerback was spotted at the site Tuesday cooperating with police, according to local news outlets.

Dealing with a back injury, Farley is currently placed on the physically unable-to-perform list.

He was drafted in the 2021 NFL Draft with the No. 22 overall pick, however, he hasn’t seen much action on the field since then — playing in only 12 games.

In his short career, Farley has 14 comb tackles, 13 solo tackles, one AST tackle and one PD interception.
