Probably doesn't help that he's always injured and is afraid of contact.  Someone will pick him up.  Some dumb team that doesn't really scout players like Houston or Chicago.

Someday, a concussion will mean that the player is shut down for the season.  It takes that much time for the brain to heal completely and to make a full recovery.

 

Ladarius, like Jordan Reed, has had multiple concussions in too short of a time span causing brain damage.

 

The Steelers to a risk, it didn't pay off, and they cut bait when they realized that his talent meant nothing because he would never be healthy.  I do not think when the Steelers signed him that was believed as much as it is today.

 

Someday all players will wear a chip in their helmet measuring impacts and G-forces while being constantly monitored.

Lol Amen if they start to monitor the impacts of hits and G Forces they will need a much deeper bench.
