Drew Bledsoe wants to start a conversation.

The sports world tragically lost a member Tuesday afternoon, as Washington State quarterback Tyler Hilinski was found dead in his Pullman, Wash. apartment. Police suspect the 21-year-old’s death was a result of suicide.

Hilinski’s untimely death hit close to home for Bledsoe. The former NFL QB is a Washington State product and his son, John, currently is a quarterback for the Cougars, having just wrapped up his freshman season.

In reaction to Hilinski’s passing, Bledsoe took to Instagram to stress the importance of talking about mental health.

Well said, Drew.
