Joe Thomas said hes experienced short term memory loss. "Im not sure if it's old age or football." He's 32. RT if you're 32 with memory loss

I just heard about Joe Thomas dealing with memory loss. Truly tragic. Just hope he's able to lead a quality life after football.

With the NFL's horrible history of dealing with concussions in the past and with their most recent efforts to right this wrong, this cannot be helpful to their endeavors. Let's just all hope that Thomas can get the help he needs to prevent this memory loss from happening. Because at 32, he has got a whole lot more life to live out after his football playing days are over.
