The average life expectancy of an American football NFL player has been reported to be very low, merely 53 to 59 years depending on playing position.[1]

Contrastly, a 2012 study reported that retired NFL players have a lower mortality rate than men in the general population.[2] Retired FL players often have significant wealth and there is a positive correlation between wealth and longer life.[3]

Here is growing list of NFL enthusiasts who, despite being above average in wealth in and intelligence, prematurely declined in their health and/or died younger than the average American:

NFL Enthusiast date of declining health and/or death
Wade Wilson, quarterback and then NFL coach died at 60[4]
Dwight Clark, star wide receiver and then NFL executive developed Lou Gehrig's disease, died at 61
Tommy Nobis, "Mr. Falcon" who constantly watched football declined mentally for years, developed CTE,[5] died at 74[6]
Pat Bowlen, owner and constant fan of the Denver Broncos died at age 75 after having Alzheimer's disease for more than 5 years[7]
