Bernie Kosar radio appearance raises concerns


Former NFL quarterback Bernie Kosar gave a radio interview this week in Cleveland that has some of his fans expressing concerns about his well-being.

The interview with WKNR is difficult to describe, but if you listen to it, you’ll hear Kosar sounding incoherent and upset, and the hosts cut him off and say, “Why don’t we catch up next week?” Kosar protests and says he wants to keep talking, but he continues to stumble over his words and the interview is ended abruptly.

We’re not sure what was wrong with Kosar, but a number of fans who listened to the interview have expressed concerns about him. Kosar has spoken openly in retirement about problems with his finances, his taxes, his divorce and his family, and he has said he is dealing with physical pain from post-football surgeries, and that he suffered several concussions while playing football.

We’re hoping that the 49-year-old Kosar, who retired in 1996 after a 12-year NFL career, was just not feeling well or having an off day. If he needs help, we hope he gets it.
