THE NFL HAS brought in a few good men, and women, to help change attitudes regarding the dangers of concussions.
The league has partnered with the U.S. Army and Marines to educate athletes, military personnel and the public about brain and head juries.
Recently, NFL players past and present met with Army and Marine representatives at the Pentagon to share information.
According to the report, several current and former players met with military types last week to discuss strategy.
"It has to start with the kids," former Eagles running back Brian Westbrook said. "Then they'll get older and they'll realize, ‘Hey, this isn't just part of the sport. It's way more serious than that and it has to be treated the right way.'"
