Former NFL quarterback and second overall pick in the 1998 draft Ryan Leaf is resting comfortably at home after having a benign tumor removed from his brain stem.

"I am looking forward to resting a bit and being with my family. Thank you for all the prayers and support. My whole family truly appreciates it. This was just another bridge for me to cross, and I will continue to live each day to the fullest and give back where I can."
If you ask me, the real story here is that Leaf actually has a brain to have had surgery on in the first place. Who knew?
Don't get me wrong, I'm glad the guys okay and all, but still. There are 78-year-old Alzheimer patients that can process and remember information faster than he could during his playing days.
Looking back on it now, it's hard to believe that many organizations thought Leaf was the better quarterback over Peyton Manning in that year's draft.
Nice call fellas.
