On former Raven Michael McCrary's health problems

His situation is all too common for retired players. Which is why I will never understand criticism of a guy like Tiki Barber for getting out when he still can in good health.

He needs to get those knees replaced ASAP, because all that "medication" he is on is going to lead to addiction problems that will make the knees look like a minor issue.

I love McCrary, but, on the other hand, these guys got to know that what they're doing on the field will likely have serious long-term health repercussions down the line.
