    It is an unfortunate sequence that follows many NFL players for life. It is not uncommon that players are well-supplied with narcotics "legally" by the team to make some of them "functional." However, once they leave football, their "legal" supplier disappears and physicians outside of the game are reluctant to prescribe in the doses and amounts previously illegal narcotics are supplied to either "supplement" their private physician's prescription or substitute it if they cannot find a physician that feels the narcotic is indicated. Of course, having multiple physicians (one not knowing of the other) see them for the same problem many times can allow them to obtain what they feel is an adequate dose and supply.
