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.

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.
