Sidney Rice and Steve Weatherford are donating their brains to science

Giants punter Steve Weatherford, along with former NFL wide receiver Sidney Rice, will donate his brain for scientific research after they pass away according to CNN. Weatherford and Rice were on the news talking about their decisions.

@Weatherford5: I’m  donating my brain post mortem for scientific research. Think about your brain health and check out @MEsportsUSA. #EHT

Rice, who was a Pro Bowler in 2009, retired at age 27 after suffering 10 concussions in his lifetime. He says he got his first concussion when he was about eight years old.
