Great player. Bill Walsh found a good one in the 10th round.

ah ****.

He was before my time but I still know how much he meant to this franchise and our history. I hope he rests in peace.




I hope they donate his brain to science. I'd be curious to see if there was any correlation between playing football and ALS.

RIP,  glad Debartolo was able to set up one last get together with his old buddies. Just knew from reading that article that his time was coming soon. Glad he is no longer suffering.

From Browns Nation - our condolences. Dwight was our first GM upon the team's return in 1999.

No progressive disease is easier than the other. I watched the neighbor of a close friend of mine suffer from ALS, and he eventually succumbed to it. Rest in peace, Dwight.

Great video of Steve Mariccui talking about his memories of Clark. He was really hit hard by his passing.

Having had a grandmother succumb to ALS, it angers me to have anyone try and connect it with impacts/trauma to the brain. There is nothing to support that and I had never heard anyone try and connect ALS with such until Dwight...thanks for tainting my memories of you, Mr. Clark. Do not politicize ALS or football. And yes, that is essentially what Dwight did. He blamed football for his illness. 

Love you for "The Catch" Dwight, but you should not have said that. 

Anyway, RIP. You have earned it.
