    Steve Young and Troy Aikman both quit rather than leave their brains on the field.

      What I specifically meant was a younger star-- someone who hasn't already spent a decade getting the stuffing beaten out of them by NFL D-linemen-- getting a severe concussion on the field and never being able to play again. But you're absolutely right-- Aikman, Young, Esiason and even Bruschi and (rest in peace) Seau all retired early due to concussions.
