After suffering yet another concussion last season, the speculation started again as to whether or not Cleveland Browns S Brodney Pool would be forced into retirement. According to the Plain Dealer via Pool's agent, Pool does not plan on retiring any time in the near future:
"Brodney absolutely intends on playing football for many years to come," agent Ben Dogra wrote in an email. "He has been checked out and has a clean bill of health. He is anxious to play football in 2010."
Pool is a restricted free agent and has been with the Browns for five seasons. He's suffered four concussions during his career already though, and at some point you have to put your foot down and say, "it's over." Maybe Pool will reach that point after his fifth concussion next season.
