Albert Haynesworth Says 2 Brain Aneurysms Almost Killed Him In 2015

Former Washington Redskins defensive tackle Albert Haynesworth changed the game as we know it, but not in a good way. He left a sour taste in Redskins fans mouth after he signed one of the largest free agent contracts in NFL history, but was out of the NFL 2 years later.

During a interview with 104.5 The Zone in Nashville, Haynesworth stated he almost died last year in 2015 due to 2 brain aneurysms:

“Nobody really knows, I almost died,” he said while attending the Ohio Valley Conference women’s basketball tournament at Municipal Auditorium. “I had two brain aneurysms that were nearly rupturing. I went and talked to my doctor in Florida, and he was like, ‘Man, your blood pressure is through the roof. I’m going to admit you.’ They did a lot of tests and found the aneurysm that was rupturing at that point.”

“I’ve been OK,” Haynesworth said. “It’s really hard to remember, and I’m not saying that just because of the concussion thing. A lot of things, I just can’t remember. I don’t feel as sharp as I used to as far as problem-solving and answering questions and things. It sounds crazy, but sometimes, writing my own name, I kind of forget the signature of how I normally write. Or sending long texts, my words get backwards. It’s crazy, but hopefully as time goes on, I get better.”
