Haynesworth played ten years in the league after being selected 15th overall pick in the 2002 NFL draft. He was named first-team All-Pro while with the Tennessee Titans in 2007 and 2008.

As Haynesworth referenced in the post, this isn’t the first time he has dealt with medical issues. In 2014 a brain aneurysm caused him to spend time in intensive care. Hopefully, Haynesworth will find someone to donate a kidney so he can continue to live a fulfilling life. Haynesworth is only 38 years old and is way too young to be dealing with all these medical issues.
