BOSTON — Two more retired football players have pledged their brains to research.

Two-time Super Bowl champion Leonard Marshall and three-time Pro Bowl selection Matt Hasselbeck say they will donate their brains to the Concussion Legacy Foundation for research into chronic traumatic encephalopathy.

The announcements were made on Wednesday as part of the second annual Brain Trust conference, which is hosted by the Veterans Administration.

“During my football career, we didn’t have enough information on the long-term effects of concussions and brain trauma,” Hasselbeck said. “I want to be part of the solution, and by pledging my brain I am doing my part to provide the data to protect the next generation of athletes.”

Hasselbeck’s father, Don, an NFL tight end for eight years, pledged his brain to the CTE Center at Boston University in 2010.

Maybe that's why he couldn't remember asking the equipment guys to deflate the footballs or even their names.
