Gary Plummer

San Francisco 49ers beat writer Matt Maiocco put together an insightful podcast, this time with former 49ers player Gary Plummer.

Plummer was on the 49ers during the last Super Bowl win in 1994 and saw the rise of Terrell Owens. He was diagnosed with early-onset dementia and revealed that he’s been victim to over 2,500 concussions. Plummer gives his thoughts on football and how he thinks the brain can cope with so much strain in the podcast.
