It sounds crazy but many players face problems after football that has nothing to do with concussions. What's being overlooked is just how big these players are and that life after football does not need them to carry around so much wait. Imagine your job requiring you to be 300 plus pounds and then suddenly you're working in an office. Something needs to be done, to get you "office-fit." CNN has a couple of articles directly address this problem.
