Former NFL player working to change the game

NEED TO KNOW
  • Coy Wire played for the Buffalo Bills and Atlanta Falcons
  • Wire: Athletes playing through the pain because its their job

A titanium plate and four screws didn't keep former NFL player Coy Wire from off the football field. It's an all too common reality for football players. And it's a mentality that starts when these athletes are young. Play through the pain. But Wire is trying to change that. With the Super Bowl right around the corner, the consequences of those heavy knocks and brain damaging tackles are not what the fans want to think about. In fact, it may be the reason we love the sport so much. Can we find a balance between the rough and tumble sport and protecting our athletes? Wire is here to help us find out.
