He’s a #5 FEIR that Niednagel recommended to teams years ago. A great college player, he went on and did well in the pros before retiring. He was a bit wild, however, and a loose cannon at times, but could still play the game of football. We’re talking about Jake “The Snake” Plummer, and throughout his career he was never one to be bashful … and he still isn’t.
Medical marijuana has become a hot topic not only among the general populace, but professional sports. In football, it’s particularly at the forefront, as players seek to ease their chronic pains that this violent sport incurs. Many have come out in favor of marijuana use, and Jake is no exception. However, unlike these other players, he doesn’t mince his words.
“Like Jerry Jones, who says it’s ‘absurd’ that there would be a link between brain trauma, football and CTE,” says Plummer. “Shame on him for saying that, that billionaire [expletive]. It’s the worst thing in the world for a guy like that to say. That’s where we’re sitting; grown-[expletive] men are asked to go out there for millions of dollars — which, yeah, it’s a lot of money — bang themselves around and completely [expletive] their lives over for their 40s and 50s. So yeah, poor football players is what I say. If you’re a grown-[expletive] man, you should be allowed to make grown-[expletive] decisions.”
In other words, these grown men should be allowed to use marijuana if they want to, in his estimation. Plummer says they’re better than prescription pain killers.
