Home of Titans CB Caleb Farley explodes; one dead, one injured


Recommended Posts



One person died and another was injured when the suburban Charlotte home owned by Tennessee Titanscornerback Caleb Farley exploded overnight, per authorities in Mooresville, North Carolina.

Farley was not home at the time of the explosion but was at the property speaking with police early Tuesday morning.

Aerial footage of the lakeside home from QCNews.com showed the residence was reduced to rubble. Iredell County said the residence was 6,300 square feet and would be ruled a complete loss, along with multiple vehicles parked on site.

Fire and emergency rescue officials confirmed one male was deceased and another was transported to a local hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

Farley, 24, played at Virginia Tech and was a first-round pick of the Titans in 2021. He had multiple back surgeries in college and landed on injured reserve in 2022 to undergo another procedure, a microdiscectomy, after playing in nine games.

Awful news: #Titans CB Caleb Farley’s $3M house exploded early Tuesday morning, killing his father Robert Farley and leaving one unidentified person injured.

Caleb was not home at the time of the explosion and there is no update on what caused the explosion.

Thoughts and prayers are with Caleb who also lost his mother to cancer in 2018.

I guess it was his father, but why is it important if it's family or not? It's not any less terrible that someone died. 

Definitely not less terrible, but imagine how the kid feels knowing his dad died because of something that went wrong in his house.
