    That's the only reasonable explanation why he isn't cleared to play nor retired yet, I'm sure the doctors told him something optimistic because if they didn't, why didn't he just retire after he failed the test(or whatever) this season?
    one of the reasons reported was so he could receive his pension from the nfl. you need to have 3 years to qualify.

    No way they risk that. Its not Best's health they are worried about, its their cash cow.
    Barg is right. the independent neurologists have yet to clear best. they have nothing to do with the nfl and are only concerned with his health and also their own liability if they give him the "green light".

Best has seen a lot of DR and some have cleared him to my understanding its just that some haven't. Clear the man and let best make the decision to play or not, after all it is his life and body. Boxers make a living getting pounded in the head and still fight! I JUST DONT GET IT!!!!!
    Its not up to the NFL anymore, They were getting sued so they now have 3rd party drs that have to clear the players, The DR's are the ones that will be getting sued 10years from now if they clear him and he gets hurt, Thus they wont clear him

    Does not taking a single-snap in a season count as a year toward qualifying? If it does then this could very well be the case...

    This from NBC sports:


    Lions and Raiders staffs to coach in Senior Bowl

    Posted by Darin Gantt on January 3, 2013, 6:27 PM EST

    Getty Images
    The Raiders and Lions pick third, and fifth, respectively in this year’s draft.

    But they’ll get the first up-close look at some of the top prospects at the Senior Bowl.

    While the “honor” of coaching in Mobile, Ala., usually falls to the teams at the top of the draft order, instability can cause it to be passed along to others.

    The Chiefs, owners of the top pick, don’t have a coach (at the moment). The Jaguars, picking second, are looking for a general manager, which may trigger other changes. The Eagles, picking fourth are also looking for a new coach.

    So Lions coach Jim Schwartz was happy to step in.

    “I think we’re fifth in line. If it would happen, we would embrace it and we would relish that opportunity,” he said, via the team’s official website. “I think there is some insight involved in getting to know those guys over a course of the week and it can confirm some of our scouts’ evaluations that have already worked very long and hard into getting guys evaluated this fall season.

    “It can also maybe give us a different perspective on some other guys. Maybe we get a little bit more time with some other guys.”

    Schwartz also coached the 2010 version of the game, saying the background he developed on running back Joique Bell was part of the reason they felt comfortable bringing him in.

    While combine workouts and pre-draft interviews have become programmed exercises for most players, getting them in a football environment gives coaches a chance to see them when they’re reacting naturally, rather than rehearsed, and now the Raiders and Lions get the first peek behind that curtain.

    Says Bucs likely to cut Eric Wright. I would welcome him back as our slot CB. Re-sign Houston and sign Eric Wright and draft another CB and we would have a nice group of guys

    Johnathan Banks - Eric Wright - Chris Houston
    Bill Bentley - Jonte Green - Ron Bartell/Lacey/Greenwood

    I'll take Wright back with open arms... Sad he left last season, but Tampa Bay was just stupid for offering him that deal.

    You guys are on crack! Wright was our worst player when he was here. Don;t you remember the sliver of relief you felt when he signed elsewhere and you knew he wasnt going to be a Lion?

    He wasn't as good as Houston, but you can't deny he made some big plays and didn't get beat near as much as what we had last year. Of course you don't sign him if he demands another big deal, but bringing him back to play him inside is good. We need all the depth we can get at corner and can't deny he can play and make plays.

    In my opinion, he was easily the worst player on the team and can still watch him getting spun around by other teams WRs on their way past him into the end zone.

    You must got him confused with Alphonso or Berry... he was solid here from the times I remembered, outside of Houston he was probably or second best DB last year IMO.

    Why you think he got that big payday from Tampa Bay?
