Albert Haynesworth Explains How 2 Brain Aneurysms Almost Killed Him

Albert Haynesworth will always be the guy responsible a lot of NFL teams changing their approach to free agency, guaranteeing less money upfront in deals while making it even easier to cut a player if he doesn’t produce.

Haynesworth signed one of the largest free agent contracts in NFL history seven years ago, but was out of the league two years later and labeled as an all-time bust.

During a sitdown with 104.5 The Zone in Nashville, Haynesworth divulged that he almost died last year from “two brain aneurysms," per ESPN.com.

“Nobody really knows, I almost died,” he said while attending the Ohio Valley Conference women’s basketball tournament at Municipal Auditorium. “I had two brain aneurysms that were nearly rupturing. I went and talked to my doctor in Florida, and he was like, ‘Man, your blood pressure is through the roof. I’m going to admit you.’ They did a lot of tests and found the aneurysm that was rupturing at that point.”

Haynesworth was in intensive care for eleven days after emergency surgery.

“I’ve been OK,” Haynesworth said. “It’s really hard to remember, and I’m not saying that just because of the concussion thing. A lot of things, I just can’t remember. I don’t feel as sharp as I used to as far as problem-solving and answering questions and things. It sounds crazy, but sometimes, writing my own name, I kind of forget the signature of how I normally write. Or sending long texts, my words get backwards. It’s crazy, but hopefully as time goes on, I get better.”

Here’s hoping the restaurateur can maintain his good health.
