BOSTON (CBS) — Gisele Bündchen, the wife of New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady, said in an interview that Brady “had a concussion last year.” In an interview on CBS This Morning Wednesday, Charlie Rose asked Bündchen about comments Brady made on Sirius XM NFL Radio back in February that suggested she would have him retire if she had things her way. I don’t really think it’s a healthy thing for your body to go through like, through that kind of aggression like, all the time–that cannot be healthy for you, right?
“You know, I just have to say as a wife, I’m a little bit, its, as you know, it’s not the most like, let’s say, un-aggressive sport, right? “Football, like he had a concussion last year, I mean he has concussions pretty much every–you know, we don’t talk about it but he does have concussions.
“Today we have been in contact with the NFLPA and will work together to gather more information from the club’s medical staff and Mr. The health and safety of our players is our foremost priority and we want to ensure that all our players have and continue to receive the best care possible.” Our Union has taken proactive steps to address the issue of player health and safety – concussions in particular – during the past several years.
We are united with players and their families to raise greater awareness, improve medical care and protocols, and above all, to offer them with support.
