This doesn't change the fact that it was assinine to give a 35+ player a seven year contract. The older the player the more likely that the player will get injured.

Given how concussions are handled these days, as well, the likelihood that a concussion forces a guy in his thirties to retire is much higher than a guy in his twenties.

... and most injuries cannot be foreseen or prevented...
