Reggie williams may havve amputation

7 posts in this topic

Saw this about Reggie Williams, former LB for the  Bengals. After 24 surgeries, his knee is so mangled and disfigured his DR.s say he will eventually lose his leg.  Insurance doesn't cover his preexisting condition but he has done well after football as a VP of Disney.  This screams to the fact that there needs to be some level of disability benefits for retired players.

 

Here's the link (the pic of his knee is pretty graphic):

SAD, at least the owner of the Bengals should help pay for his treatment if not the 10 Billion a year NFL....  These guys need to be taken care of....

 

If I was a current player on the Bengals, I wouldnt want to play for that team anymore, I would hit the road as soon as my contract is up.

I saw that picture it looks like he tried to stop a car with his knee.

Maybe his college should pay. Or his high school. The problem is there are so many football players out there. You can't pay for all of them.

    • Of course, he's so massive he has his own gravitational pull. 
    • You miss the point. Taylor was here before. We picked him because of what he could do for our wide receivers not because he had some great knowledge no other person had on the staff. Shula and Rivera and Gettleman studied multiple college systems for months before signing Taylor or drafting McCaffrey or Curtis and would have drafted the same whether Taylor was here or not. They liked the way Taylor developed McCaffrey which showed his talent but Stanford's offense wasn't Taylors idea or unique to him. Shula has a connection to Taylor as early as when Shula was at Alabama.  The debate was whether Taylor was chosen to replace Shula because Shula didn't know what to do to run a college offense and if he screwed up Taylor would replace him. And that Taylor was the reason and most influential in getting McCaffrey. I said it wasn't even close to the truth and this plan predated Taylor and was more thorough and we'll thought out. Everything since then just confirms I was right once again like usual.
