DENOUNCING AND REJECTING MY PRIOR REMARKS: I know I said something else earlier this week, but Andrew Sweat's comments to Pro Football Talk are sufficient to sway me as to his decision to give up his NFL dreams for law school:
“I suffered three concussions in college,” Sweat said. “My last one was against Purdue, which was a very bad one. I stumbled off the field, could hardly walk, was numb in my fingers. It was really bad. The symptoms continued in early spring and even through the draft, but I wanted to play football, I wanted to give it a shot, so I signed with the Browns and went to the minicamp. But I slipped and fell in the shower, I hit my head — not even that hard — against the wall, and that brought back all those concussions. I went to the trainers with the Browns and consulted my family and decided to step away from the game.”
