Fred Arbanas helped the Kansas City Chiefs win their one and only Super Bowl championship in 1970. The former tight end says that when played, coaches and doctors didn’t really worry that much about concussions.
“They’d ask you what day is it, where are you?” said Arbanas, a member of the Chiefs Hall of Fame. “If you answered a couple questions right by guessing you’d be back on the field.”
Today, Arbanas says that he understands why so many current and former football players are sounding the alarm about head injuries.
University of North Carolina linebacker Quan Sturdivant is visiting the Kansas CIty Chiefs today, according to a league source with knowledge of the situation.
He visited the Washington Redskins on Tuesday.
Sturdivant recenty conducted a private workout for the Atlanta Falcons.
“It was such an honor to represent the NFL last night, but more importantly it was an honor to represent the Chiefs and the Hunt family at the awards ceremony,” said Chiefs Vice President of Media and Marketing Rob Alberino. “The Hunt’s have allowed us the ability to run with our ideas and truly be creative which, in turn, has made for a terrific product for the fans.”
