Saints defensive tackle Nick Fairley is coming off the best season of his six-year career, but his future in the NFL is in doubt because of a heart condition, according to FOX Sports’ Jennifer Hale.
It gets worse, too. Players who normally keep in contact with Fairley haven’t been able to reach him recently,
Fairley, 29, started all 16 games last season for the Saints, registering 29 tackles and 6.5 sacks. That earned him a four-year, $28 million deal from the Saints, who could definitely use his help, having finished near the bottom of the league in defense last year.
