Umenyiora: ‘Strong Chance’ I’ll End Up In A Wheelchair After Football

(WSCR) Junior Seau’s recent suicide has NFL players, veterans and analysts discussing the dangers of American’s most profitable game.

Last week, former Super Bowl champion Kurt Warner said on The Dan Patrick Show that football is a dangerous game and he’d prefer his sons not play football.

Warner’s comments did not sit well with former Giants wide receiver Amani Toomer who said: “For him to try and trash the game it seems to me that it’s just a little disingenuous.”

Giants defensive end Osi Umenyiora stood up for Warner, saying Toomer was “dead wrong.”

“Kurt Warner is Right to think how he is thinking about his kids and football,” Umenyiora said in a series of unprompted Tweets. “Its an awesome game and has done a lot for me, but i know when im 45 there is a strong chance il be in a wheelchair.”
