But like with ANY illness that can have numerous side effects, doesn't mean he has them all. We have no clue how severe it is. Will it shorten his playing career, YES. We have a long time to worry about that. If he is there at 15, we take him!

There is an article that clearly says you can get surgery to widen the space between the vertebrae and the nerves. Most people don't have the money for that, but Jarvis will pretty soon. Surgery has been highly successful according to that article, but obviously it's no guarantee.

It's more complicated than just arthritis. Arthritis, of course, is chronic inflammation, and you can treat it, but you can't really stop it as far as I know. Some form of arthritis leads to the narrowing of space with Stenosis, and when those nerves are being squeezed it causes far more problems than just pain. But if he can get that procedure done, it should hopefully lengthen his career.

I'm no doctor, I'm just going on what information I can gather. But I'm weighing the upside verses the risk, and I still think we have to take him if he falls. I really doubt he falls that far, though.

If I had a nickel for every time I heard that, the NFL would fine and suspend me.

So the kid is advised to leave the game and instead he plays two years of lights out football at an aggressive position in one of the top defenses last year in the toughest conference in college football.

With no ill affects.

I'd grab him at 15.

It hasn't seemed to affect him so far.

Whether we take him or not. I just hope the young man makes the right decision for his long term health. I love the Saints but not at the risk of someone playing football when maybe they shouldn't.
