Chris Conte: “NFL Worth Early Death”

Chis-Conte

Chicago Bears safety Chris Conte, who has suffered two concussions this season, says playing in the NFL is worth the risk he takes to his long-term health by doing so.

“Ever since I was a little kid, it’s what I’ve wanted to do,” Conte told WBBM Newsradio in Chicago. “In college, I didn’t even graduate school because my senior year, I honestly let school be a casualty to that because I knew I had one opportunity to make it to the NFL, and I put everything into that. And I felt school’s something I could figure out later.”
