    Default Eagles DT Patterson collapses.

    With news that Philly's Mike Patterson collapsed during training camp, and has since been diagnosed with Arteriovenous malformations (AVM), here's an article that helps understand the problem.

    Even if Patterson gets away with the one, maybe two surgeries, would he be wise to consider continuing with his NFL career?

    Man, I didn't even know that existed. Crazy! I know I would retire if I had something crazy like that. I would probably retire with any kind of uncertainty above the shoulders...that's an area you don't want to mess with!

    I wonder if there is anything in the CBA to cover this? I know there is supposed to be something about the effects of concussion, but this is still brain related.

    I'm off to bed guys. It's 3am here, and I have some landscaping to do later this morning.
