Agreed... They say he didn't even have control over his legs after the incident.

They should at least IR him for the year. Broken bones and torn up joints heal and in 99% of the cases you'll be fine in the long run but head injuries is a different monster.

Re: Should Swann Hang 'em Up?

Some guys just aren't built for it - it's that simple.

Sure hope P J Williams can return and be a force at CB...

Should Swann retire - as he should - and we can eliminate the liability in Browner, that would leave us with...

Keenan Lewis, Delvin Breaux, Brian Dixon, Kyle Wilson and P.J. Willaims for a 2016 CB corps - we'd only need to draft or sign one more CB...

Scary. It just might be time to walk away.

IR him and teach him how to keep his head behind the ball carrier when he's tackling. Proper technique helps. I think that is why rugby players have fewer issues with concussions. That and we're too stubborn to come off the pitch.

Re: Should Swann Hang 'em Up?

he should take the rEst of this year and the entire season next year off as well. I think concussions take much much longer to heal from than we recognize.
