Sanders recently said the following on the NFL Network,
“The game is a safe game, the equipment is better, I don’t buy all these guys coming back with these concussions. I’m not buying all that. Half these guys are trying to make money off the deal. That’s real talk. That’s really how it is. I wish they’d be honest and tell the truth because it’s keeping kids away from our game.”
Joe Horn’s response on the David Baumann Show on 1080 The Team Orlando & 1040 The Team Tampa.
“I think Deion has a very high IQ and (is) very knowledgeable when it comes down to football. However, the comment that he made about the concussions and what guys may be in it just for the money was asinine. It pissed me off. I was upset about that and when I see him face to face I’ll ask him about it. I think Deion should have done some research.”
“Nationally, publicly, he made that comment. I think Junior Seau’s family, I think Dave Duerson’s, I think some families that had fathers, grandfathers or uncles who died from some of those concussions and diseases that caused that, he should come nationally and apologize to those families, because he don’t know.”
“I am in the lawsuit. I was one of the first ten guys that was actually in it two years ago. The problem is this man, how [the NFL] didn’t handle it and how they didn’t tell some of the players about it… The ordeal is, I do have headaches sometimes and I’ve had several concussions… When I’m 45-50 years old and something is happening to me, how do I know that’s not a part of me getting hit?”
“I’m just upset that it wasn’t handled properly when we got concussions the way it’s being handled now. I’m glad it’s being handled now that way… It needs to be addressed and if the NFL has to pay for that, and hey, it is what is, but if they don’t and they’re brought to justice and just how to handle better situations, then I’m OK with that too.”
