Jay Cutler Is Cool With Concussions

Jay Cutler has some real talent. There's no denying that he's a world class athlete — but he gets sacked a lot.

No, not tea-bagged you pervs, he gets tackled while quarterbacking.

Defenders are always charging up the rear, hammering him. No! Not in that way! Jeez, people.

Anyway, he's always getting hit, and these guys are trying to take him down HARD. So concussions are an always present danger.

This conversation has been around a while but it's been brought back into the public forum after Junior Seau killed himself.

Jay knew the risks when he signed up, saying:

"It's a tough subject, it's a touchy subject, I think you have to be careful what you say and don't say. Some guys are totally on one side of [this] and other guys are on the other side of the fence. You know, I signed up to play football. I understand that. I understand you're going to take hits, you're going to get beat up.

At the end of the day, it's a tough sport. You're going to take shots in the head, and you're going to get concussions from time to time. But no one made me play football. [No] one put a gun to my head and said, 'You have to play football.' It's what I love to do. And I knew the risks and benefits going into it."

We just hope his words don't come back to haunt him.

Early dementia and depression are a very real thing for retired professional football players.

We just hope the NFL starts to take more responsibility when it comes to the safety of their players.
