Hall of Famer Rod Carew is alive because of former NFL player’s organ donation

Former New York Jets and Baltimore Ravens tight end Konrad Reuland died of a brain aneurysm in December at the age of 29.

One of the organ donor’s kidneys went to a woman in her 60s, his liver to a man in his 50s, and his heart and other kidney to a 71-year-old man, according to the Mercury News.

That man is MLB Hall of Famer Rod Carew. The Bills get themselves another Clemson receiver as the perfect complement to Sammy Watkins. Williams is the most athletic receiver in the draft class and, at 6-4, 218, has the size and length teams covet. Williams bounced back from a neck injury in 2015 to catch 98 passes for 1,361 yards and 11 touchdowns for the national champions.

That is true! Russ lags on defense, and his big men defer basically every uncontested rebound to him.

I don’t think stat-padding equals empty stats, though. Watch enough Russ rebounds and you’ll see a whole mess of Oklahoma City Thunder fast breaks succeeding because the ball came off the glass so fast. Russ rebounding himself cuts out the split second or two needed for some big guy to collect the MLB Baseball Jerseys board, find his guard, and throw an outlet pass. The moment he snags the carom, Russ Cheap Ireland Football Jerseys is off to the races, and his teammates know to run with him. OKC was top-3 in fast break points per game this season, in part because those Russ rebounds caught so many transitioning defenses.
