TMZ is the only one reporting he is dead, I would take it worth a grain of salt unless someone else reports on it, ESPN doesn't even have a post about it nor does anyone else...which is kinda weird

It sounds like there is a lot more to this story. After the medical examiner is finished, it would be good to see the actual report.

Go read some of the comments on Yahoo for the story. It will turn your stomach. On his apparent suicide, Dave Duerson of the Bears shot himself the same way last year. His suicide note said he wanted his brain saved so it can be studied in relation to concussions.

There was a local AM station discussing the suicide this morning. One of those discussing it was a doctor that specializes in repetitive concussions and early onset dementia. There may be a lot more to the correlation between football head contact and later in life maladies than we know.

Between steroids and concussions there is a lot yet to learn. That's why I'm so heavily behind the new headgear for HS and younger. There are some with sensors that measure impacts that then transfer to the base computer which keeps a summary record.
