For Kevin.

Barry is too young.
My wife's cousin passed away this morning from a heart attack.

Hall of Fame running back Barry Sanders experienced a heart-related health scare last weekend, he said in a statement posted to social media Friday.

Sanders did not offer details on the exact nature of his condition, but described the experience as "unexpected" and "a reminder of the importance of staying vigilant about our physical well-being, even when we are feeling fine."

In his statement, the Detroit Lions legend also shared his gratitude for the doctors, nurses and health care professionals who treated him.

Sanders, who turns 56 next month, went on to say that per doctor recommendation, he is "taking this opportunity to prioritize my health and well-being."

The Lions issued their own social media post saying, "Get well soon Barry."

Sanders was a six-time All-Pro while starring for the Lions from 1989 to 1998 before his sudden retirement at age 31.
One of the most electrifying players in league history, Sanders is fourth on the NFL's career rushing list with 15,269 yards in just 10 seasons, including 2,053 yards in his MVP season of 1997.

He was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 2004.

Sanders spent his entire career with the Lions, who selected him with the third overall pick in the 1989 NFL draft after his Heisman Trophy-winning season with Oklahoma State.

Last season, the Lions unveiled a statue outside Ford Field of Sanders, the first player in franchise history to receive such an honor.

Zero2Cool (3h) : Packers signed a QB today
Zero2Cool (3h) : Packers long snapper Peter Bowden has been released to sign Jacob Eason.
wpr (4h) : I heard Reed tweeked his ankle and his youth camp.
beast (4h) : I believe NJI is usually used for pre-NFL injuries (rookies) and vets that got injured doing something they weren't supposed to.
beast (4h) : Might be interesting to hear how Reed got injured, as I believe NJI is non-football and teams don't have to pay you list.
Zero2Cool (22-Jul) : Love won't practice until new deal is agreed. Ok, my stance changed
Zero2Cool (22-Jul) : TRAIIIIINNNNNING CAMP!!! let's fookin go!!!
Zero2Cool (22-Jul) : Jayden Reed placed on Non-Football Injury list
beast (21-Jul) : Yeah with the way the cap went up, don't be surprised if the new good QB gets more than $55 million per season
Zero2Cool (21-Jul) : Kenny Clark. Extended!!
buckeyepackfan (21-Jul) : The "raw" number will probably be in that area. The numbers to look at are signing bonus. Guaranteed money, and Salary Cap Hit each year.
dfosterf (21-Jul) : Those numbers align with my guesstimate. Might find out tomorrow
Zero2Cool (21-Jul) : Saw some rumor the Love contract is around 5 years $280m. There's no way.

wpr (17-Jul) : I was disappointed the Packers didn't get the chance to draft Aiyuk. 10 minutes later I changed my mind.
Mucky Tundra (16-Jul) : Zero, absolutely! Reading comments from offseasn workouts all the players+coaches say the same
Zero2Cool (16-Jul) : Send him to Dolphins haha
Zero2Cool (16-Jul) : 49ers All-Pro WR Brandon Aiyuk has officially requested a trade after an offseason of unsuccessful attempts to reach an extension.
Zero2Cool (16-Jul) : My comment was not. I think offense starting off ahead of last season should be a great sight to see!
wpr (16-Jul) : It was only hyperbole people.
Mucky Tundra (16-Jul) : And that's with what we know unless a training camp darkhorse emerges
Mucky Tundra (16-Jul) : Wilson vs Dillon for RB
