Arron Sears Update

We'll never know how good he could have been.
Arron Sears left the Bucs abruptly in 2009 and no one would ever really comment on the reason other than it was “personal” and obviously had something to do with a mental or emotional issue. I have a special place in my heart for Sears who is a former Volunteer, a former Buccaneer and by all accounts a really nice guy. So this update by PFT from a lawsuit filed against the NFL saddens me because it definitely isn’t encouraging.

“Sears has almost total loss of function, is unable to care for himself and cannot take [care] of his day-to-day activities,” the lawsuit says, according to the Tampa Bay Times. “Further, Arron Sears has extreme displays of temper and anger with the appurtenant risk of causing harm to himself and others.”

I’m not going to use this entry to vent my opinions on concussion issues or how much responsibility the NFL or the individual has for those issues. I just want to wish Sears recovery. Or, if that’s impossible, at least some peace. Good luck, big guy.

Damn shame. I hope he gets help and is being taken care of by family. The only thing I have a problem with is saying all these neurological problems are from two years in the nfl. Why not go after the NCAA as well? That being said I’ll leave it alone. Get well bud.

He got hammered at Tennessee, too. He probably has a case against UT and/or the NCAA. But he came into the NFL already messed up, I promise you.
