07:37 PM ET 01.30 | Junior Seau's tragic suicide in 2012 rocked the sports world and officially brought awareness of CTE and brain damage brought on by years of NFL brutality, to the forefront of everyone's conscious. But while the violence of the game deserves a majority of the blame for the deterioration of these guys' brains, not everyone thinks it should be the only thing blamed. The common rebuttal to the argument that the NFL is too violent is that the guys who play the game know what they're signing up for. Bernard Pollard subscribes to the idea that the game is getting watered down and his fellow safety Ed Reed agrees. Speaking to the media, Reed said while Junior Seau's decline and suicide was insanely tragic, he knew what he was signing up for when he joined the NFL.
