1 min read

Five years ago, former Detroit Lions quarterback Erik Kramer attempted to take his own life. Though he survived the incident, he was left with severe brain damage that left him vulnerable to an ex-wife who he claims victimized him in a scheme that ultimately cost him hundreds of thousands of dollars. He tells his story to Dan Wetzel of Yahoo Sports in hopes that others suffering mental illness (including many of his former colleagues in the NFL) will seek the help they need.
