Brett Favre reveals scary experience with concussions

2013-10-24-brett-favre

Retired quarterback Brett Favre played 20 seasons in the NFL.

This included many memorable moments and a streak where he started 321 consecutive games.

During that span, Favre took a lot of hits, and endured plenty of injuries, including multiple concussions.

Now, the 44-year-old is paying the price, as evidenced by this recent revelation on a radio show in Washington.

"I don't remember my daughter playing soccer, playing youth soccer, one summer," he said.

"I don't remember that. I got a pretty good memory, and I have a tendency like we all do to say, 'Where are my glasses?' and they're on your head. This was pretty shocking to me that I couldn't remember my daughter playing youth soccer, just one summer, I think. I remember her playing basketball, I remember her playing volleyball, so I kind of think maybe she only played a game or two. I think she played eight. So that's a little bit scary to me.

"For the first time in 44 years, that put a little fear in me."

Earlier this week, reports surfaced saying that the St. Louis Rams had reached out to Favre to see if he wanted to come back and play, which Favre declined.

Asked about what kind of price he may pay down the road for his NFL career, "I think after 20 years, God only knows the toll," he said.
