According to a report by Pro Football Talk, soon-to-be Hall of Famer Tony Boselli has the coronavirus. Boselli is one of thousands of Americans, who are dealing with this infectious disease.
Bleacher Report’s Mike Freeman reported that Boselli is in ‘an intensive care unit.’ While the report says that he is doing better, he is still receiving treatment.
While Freeman is reporting the news as accurate, it has not been confirmed by other sources. If this is true, it’ll be the second known person, with ties to the NFL, to have the infectious respiratory virus. New Orleans Saints head coach Sean Payton announced he had the virus – and recently announced that he beat it.
Several other athletes have beat the coronavirus. Detroit Pistons player Christian Wood has beat it, along with Utah Jazz players Rudy Gobert and Donovan Mitchell.
Most cases are not serious and many times, people, who get this virus, are able to beat it. However, there have been many thousands of deaths around the world from the virus that started in China.
Besides being known as COVID-19, it is also known as severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2). According to WebMD, most cases range from mild to serious.
Boselli was the first pick by the Jacksonville Jaguars with the second overall pick in the 1995 NFL Draft. During his playing career, he was a five-time Pro Bowler.
He also was named to the NFL’s 1990s All-Decade Team. He was also named a three-time first-team All-Pro during his career.
In the 2002 expansion draft, he was the No. 1 overall pick by the Houston Texans. However, due to injuries, he was never able to suit up for the team and retired at the conclusion of that season.
Boselli is a member of the College Football Hall of Famer. And one day in the near future, he will get the honor to go into the Pro Football Hall of Fame.
He has been a finalist for the Pro Football Hall of Fame the past four years. However, he will have to wait another year, as he was not selected as the Class of 2020, who are going to receiver their Gold Jackets this summer.
