It's very preliminary, but former Eagles safety Andre Waters' suicide in November may be another tragic data point in the story of the NFL and concussions. Apparently the 44-year-old Waters had a brain which had degenerated to resemble that of an 80-year-old man in the early stages of Alzheimer's. Thanks to reader Mike Juntunen for pointing out this story.
