Yesterday, the NFL finally admitted that there is a link between playing football and the degenerative brain disease CTE. And while it likely struck a chord with many NFL players, no one responded to the news about it quite like Ravens offensive tackle Eugene Monroe.
Monroe took to Twitter this morning and revealed that he is donating $10,000 to an organization called Realm of Caring Foundation that conducts marijuana research in an effort to find ways in which marijuana could be used to help those NFL players who have suffered injuries and, more specifically, head injuries. He also urged other NFL players to do the same and sent out more than 30 tweets on the topic.
We've gone through Monroe's timeline and picked out all the tweets he has sent so far today. He’s clearly very passionate about this cause in light of what the NFL admitted yesterday. You can read his tweets below:
