Erik Kramer, former NFL quarterback, survives suicide attempt

A former NFL quarterback survived an apparent suicide attempt Tuesday, when he shot himself at a California motel.

Erik Kramer, who played for four different NFL teams during a 10-year career, was found by Los Angeles County sheriff's deputies at a Calabasas motel, according to NBC News, which cited law enforcement sources.

Marshawn said she believes the suicide attempt was a result of brain damage from his time playing football.
