It appears from this ESPN online article that Steve McNair had no will and likely had done no estate planning.  Rather than go in-depth to explain the potential disastrous implications, I will direct you to this post by David Shulman, a Florida estate planning attorney.  Mr. Shulman provides an excellent analysis of the situation.  I encourage you to share your thoughts, comments, and suggestions on the situation and Mr. Shulman’s analysis.
