Jets linebacker Bart Scott, never one to shy away from voicing his opinion, joined the youth football safety discussion by saying he would prefer that his son not play the game. Scott's son, B.J., is 7 years old, and his father said he wants to keep him from getting concussions, fearful of the effect it would have on him later in life.
"I don’t want my son to play football,” Scott told the New York Daily News. “I play football so he won’t have to. With what is going on, I don’t know if it’s really worth it.”
