Found April 23, 2013 on
I don’t know if this situation was karma, but it definitely ended bad for all parties involved. Dr. Craig Brigham, the neck surgeon who cleared Georgia All American Jarvis Jones weeks before this years draft, and who was being sued by former NFL player Samari Rolle for a botched surgery, was found dead outside his Charlotte home Monday morning.
The Charlotte Observer is reporting that Brigham was found dead about 7 a.m. Monday.
Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police called it a “sudden/natural death investigation.”
“We are extremely sad to report that Dr. Craig Brigham passed away this morning from what appears to be causes related to an existing medical condition,” Blair Primis, a representative of OrthoCarolina where Brigham worked, said in a statement.
Brigham, 58, was facing a lawsuit, filed in 2011, that claimed he did not properly handle follow-up care after Rolle’s spinal fusion surgery in September 2008. Brigham and OrthoCarolina denied the claim, although they didn’t specify why in legal papers that they filed to answer the suit.
Brigham’s wife said the lawsuit by Rolle had taken a toll on her husband, but that she was confident that Craig Brigham would have won.

MLB News: The Baltimore Ravens have re-signed, LB Josh Bynes, to a one-year deal worth $480,000. Bynes played in 10 games and started three of them during the 2012 season. He could compete for a starting job but is mostly seen as a solid special teams player.

1. Inside Linebacker: The Ravens inside linebacker situation is a mess. Lewis retired, Ellerbe signed with Miami, and Jameel McClain is coming off yet another major surgery. So far, the only thing they've done to address the situation is bringing in Rolando McClain. They may be able to turn his career around, but more than likely he'll continue to be a bust. Baltimore needs...
All of a sudden the Ravens have some draft needs at receiver, tackle, linebacker and in the secondary. It's a good thing they have a dozen picks and GM Ozzie Newsome calling the shots.
I guess even with money and fame, some guys still get the urge tell a few fairy tales about the people they’ve shared their naughty bits with. Bryant McKinnie won a Super Bowl with the Baltimore Ravens this season. Soon after he hit up New York and appeared on the popular morning show, “The Breakfast Club” on Power 105. Once they were through discussing football stuff, other...
