I realize these are grown men and are accountable for the food and activity choices they make post retirement…Having said that, I think the NFLP Union could do more to educate these men and better monitor their health status with biannual physicals. Maybe they’re already doing these things and the players are failing to comply…I don’t know. But what I do know is that ex-NFL’ers, especially the bigger players have a much shorter life expectancy than the average male. And that is sad….
