Jay shared that he was concerned about possibly developing CTE, aka chronic traumatic encephalopathy, which is caused by repeated concussions and is characterized by long-term effects such as trouble concentrating, memory problems, and depression.

“Oh, absolutely,” he told the outlet when asked if he was worried about CTE. “I would say definitely my memory isn’t the same as it was 5 years ago. The amount of concussions I’ve had are probably in the double digits.”

“It’s gonna catch up to me at some point,” he continued. “I’m just trying to delay it as much as possible.”

Jay added that he has no regrets about his time in the NFL.

“Absolutely I would,” he said about doing it all over again. “I wouldn’t even question it. I’d sign up in a heartbeat.”
