The Tampa Bay Buccaneers were quick to offer their condolences in a tweet, saying: "Today's tragic news is heartbreaking for all the members of the Buccaneers family. Our thoughts and prayers are with Shaq, Jordanna and the entire Barrett family during this unimaginably difficult time."

The organization added: "While no words can provide true comfort at a time such as this, we offer our support and love as they begin to process this very profound loss of their beloved Arrayah."

Arrayah was the youngest of four children that the 30-year-old Barrett, who has been with the Bucs since 2019, shares with his partner and high school sweetheart, Jordanna.
