Absolutely LOVED him on Inside the NFL with Len Dawson back in the old days. Was a tremendous person involved in all kinds of charities for Cancer I think. I believe his son fell victim to cancer as well. Oh man this is terrible news. Nick was a total gentleman who will be so sorely missed.



Agreed. That was how I grew up in my football fanhood. I couldn't wait for that show each week.  Nick and Len were great together when it was just the two of them talking football.  This is sad news.

RIP! Loved him and Dawson on the Inside the NFL show.   As the story goes, he was diagnosed with CTE some years ago.  He donated his brain to science for CTE studies.   

Tough question for all:  Would you have traded places with this man?  Successful career in football, TV and business, but have your son be a quadriplegic due to football, and you dying before your time due to CTE?  Tough call for me.
