Five years ago, former Detroit Lions quarterback Erik Kramer attempted to take his own life. Though he survived the incident, he was left with severe brain damage that left him vulnerable to an ex-wife who he claims victimized him in a scheme that ultimately cost him hundreds of thousands of dollars. He tells his story to Dan Wetzel of Yahoo Sports in hopes that others suffering mental illness (including many of his former colleagues in the NFL) will seek the help they need.

Another day, another big contract, this time setting a record for tight ends. George Kittle will get a $75 million extension over five years. No details yet, although reports say "more than half" is guaranteed.
How often since 1997 have teammates been drafted at the wide receiver position, and how often does the player who is more productive in college actually get drafted later? Can it tell us anything about Henry Ruggs and Jerry Jeudy?
