Most reputable studies now indicate the average life span of an NFL player is 53 to 59, depending on which position he plays. Thatís roughly two decades shorter than the life expectancy of the average American male.
Now, those numbers have to do with alot more than just having CTE from repeated head trauma, but it is probably the biggest single factor because it leads to depression, dementia, addiction, and other self-destructive behaviors.
