Tuesday: Ross Tucker guest-hosts
Tuesday: Adam Schefter

Former Chicago Bears quarterback Jim McMahon joined the show to talk about the NFL’s settlement with former players, including himself.

McMahon said he’s feeling a lot better now because one doctor helped figure out what was going on. There was a blockage in his neck and spinal fluid was leaking into his brain. They fixed that, but he has to keep going back to relieve the pressure.

“My head is not full of fluid,” McMahon said. “It’s not pounding. I can actually get up in the morning and walk down the hall and feel good.”

McMahon said that he wouldn’t get out of bed and had many bad days.

“I still have the dementia,” McMahon said. “I don’t have the sharp pains. I don’t have the thoughts of killing myself.”

McMahon explained that now he has a new life.  “Now I enjoy going out and seeing some of my friends,” McMahon said. “And I can actually remember some of them.”

McMahon said he’s had to pay a lot for life insurance. “I went through two strikes through my 15 year career hoping my medical bills will be paid,” McMahon said. “That wasn’t the case. Hopefully they’ll take care of that.
