Forrest Gregg Has Died at 85

In this April 16, 2013 photo, Hall of Famer Forrest Gregg is pictured during an interview Greenwood Village, Colo. Gregg is raising awareness for Parkinson's disease 18 months after his diagnosis. While Gregg and his neurologist believe his debilitating neurological disorder stems from the many concussions he sustained during his playing career, Gregg says he's rebuffed overtures to join thousands of former players suing the NFL. He said he has his pensions from his playing and coaching days and "I don't need anything from anybody but what I earned." Yet, he doesn't begrudge those who are part of the lawsuits.
