Nick Fairley has a heart condition that could end his career

I remember when Nick Fairley was drafted by the Detroit Lions. I thought that he along with Ndamukong Suh would wreck the league as interior lineman in Detroit for the better part of a decade.

Here we are just six years into his career (four with Detroit, one with the St. Louis Rams, and this past year in New Orleans), and there’s talk that a heart condition which is undisclosed could be career-ending.

Fairley had 6.5 sacks last season for the Saints quietly, which is solid. He’s been a guy who has kept his nose somewhat clean and played the game the right way; so this is sad to see.
