NFL retired player Todd Heap’s daughter shockingly died on Friday , April 14. Todd played 10 seasons with the Baltimore Ravens and in the first round in 2001 draft he was drafted as player.
Later on in 2011, Todd Heap was released from the Arizona Cardinals and then retired from the NFL and later on he officially retired from the sport after one year.
While he was playing at Mountain View High School at Mesa, Arizona and during his college years, he earned a name for himself, and Heap was highly sought. He was one of the best players in that particular time. He was showing his best in the game, by leading his team to victory and doing the best he could do in order to achieve that.
During the match he was playing in championship at Mountain View High School Heap threw a 26-yard touchdown pass. It was a sensational and breath taking game, a game that made him up and coming and an interesting player to watch. As Heap was showing the best of his skills, and that he means business.

After leaving the Ravens Heap signed a 2 year deal with the Arizona, but in this time Heap only appeared in 12 games. While Heap’s performance with the Cardinals was noteworthy and a flawless one, his time with the Cardinals was not very conclusive with the injuries he already sustained, that was the reason why Heap was never able to achieve the success and lime light he had and achieved with the Ravens.

All parents love their kids and they can just never think about giving them harm of any kind, whether it’s physical or mental.

But as we further discuss this matter concerning the NFL players. The game play of NFL is a harsh one truth be told, they tackle each other with so much force to they are tend to have some brain injuries too. Because they mostly tackle while clashing their helmets. At that time during game or their career, they might not be aware of that situation, but later on when they are old or retire they are tend to feel the pain and the feeling of something missing, sometimes they go through some brain injuries. The constant clashing of heads while in game and tackling lead to the loss of brain cells, which then leads to some brain problems. So some of them may not even be sane enough in their old age and maybe have memory loss. But as it is clear that in this accident there was no clear evidence that the accident happened because of these kind of situations. So Heap clearly did not stuck her daughter intentionally. But we all pray from the depth of our hearts that Heap and his family can spend a beautiful life together and no other tragic incident happen in their lives. Cause this one was more than enough.
