Jim Plunkett, a former Super Bowl MVP, is the latest former NFL player to detail a life of crippling pain and misery.
My life sucks, Plunkett told the San Jose Mercury News. It’s no fun being in this body right now. Everything hurts.
Now 69, Plunkett led the Raiders to two Super Bowls after a storied career at Stanford, where he won the Heisman Trophy in 1970.
The report said Plunkett has endured 18 operations and lives with artificial knees, an artificial shoulder and debilitating pain in his surgically repaired back.
Plunkett played 15 seasons in the NFL and estimates he suffered at least 10 concussions from the time he started playing football. He’s also dealing with headaches, possibly related to Bell’s Palsy which he contracted a year ago, the Mercury News said.
After watching so many former teammates and contemporaries suffer and die young, Plunkett says it’s time for the NFL to help take care of these people.
His signature hairstyle has also been something that’s allowed people to easily identify him. At first, he started off with a more simple ombre finish to his mohawk. He’s now let it grow out even more, and taken on a bleach blonde look. It’s been one that’s been replicated by plenty of young Cheap Gaelic Jerseys fans, and popular enough to where he’s gotten an endorsement from Head and Shoulders.
He has over 2,300 posts on Instagram, that show a variety of different Cheap Fishing Jerseys outfits. His 8.6 million followers are an exposure that athletes in the past didn’t have. Beckham utilizes it to give people a glance at his style off the field.
He’s made himself into more than just a football player
Beckham has shared his videos before, some of which include himself as the subject.
