Ed Reed Comments On Junior Seau - He Knew What He Was Signing Up For

Ed Reed was asked about the safety in the game of football and also was asked to comment on former San Diego Charger Junior Seau. Here are his comments via Buffalo News:

“We have to protect ourselves,” he said. “But football has been this way for ages. It’s always been a contact sport. It’s going to be a violent sport. You’re going to have repercussions from that.

“But every player who ever played this game, and will play it, they signed up for it. We signed up for it. We know what can happen. God forbid it happen to anyone, but that’s the life we choose to live.”

What about Junior Seau, I asked. Did he sign up for what happened to him?

“Yeah,” Reed said, “he signed up to play football. We all signed up to play football. Do you want it to happen? No. When I was on the golf course, did I want to hear that Junior Seau died? No. I grew up watching him play. That was a sad day, man, a sad day.
