IMO his career is OVER. Dude is simply lucky to be alive.
This reminds me of the Sean Taylor shooting when surgeons were hopelessly trying to save his life. The MDs said even if he had survived, he would have been in a permanent vegetative state, because of the amount of blood loss and the lack of oxygen he'd had to his brain.
If the NFL folded tomorrow, the world would not stop spinning.
Get on with the next 70 years Chad!! You still accomplished more in the game than most can only dream about.
He will probably come back healthy at some point. In my opinion, the best career choice is baseball for him. He doesn't have to do much. He was a good pitcher before, and if he can land on an American league team, then doesn't have to bat either. Just simply pitch, and if he does well, then probably will have a longer career, and make more money then his whole draft class. That's assuming he is any good.
Yeah, he gets to keep all of his $800,000+ signing bonus.
If that's the case then I agree with whoever suggested baseball. Rest and heal, train full-time while living off your $800K, and go make more money for a longer period of time while putting less stress on your body.
