    This is a tragic story.

    I hope to see this issue addressed in the next CBA. The NFL has been addressing the issue through rule changes, but the league needs to contribute to the medical support required by retired players.

    I believe the answer lies in the allocation of the addition piece of the pie that the players want in the next CBA. Some of these profits need to go to the research and treatment of the lasting physical and mental challenges faced by players, rather than to either the NFL or the NFLPA.
