Former All-Pro Kyle Turley Admits to Post-Football Suicidal Thoughts With Gametime
Former All-Pro offensive tackle Kyle Turley joined Game Time on Thursday to discuss his recent comments that he has had suicidal thoughts since retiring. Kyle is 37-years old and was diagnosed with two concussions during his nine-year career.
