    Former Miami Dolphins All-Pro wide receiver Mark Duper is the ninth living former NFL player to be diagnosed with signs of chronic traumatic encephalopathy, or CTE, a degenerative brain disease many scientists say is caused by head trauma and linked to depression and dementia. Duper told "Outside the Lines" he learned of his diagnosis Friday from researchers involved with the testing.

    Sad news indeed. I remember Zach Thomas saying that he gets headaches every now and then.
