Washington State is creating a neuroscience center

SPOKANE Jace Sternberger Jersey , Wash. (AP) — Cougars and New Orleans Saints defensive back Steve Gleason.The Steve Gleason Institute for Neuroscience is expected to open at the school’s satellite campus in Spokane in the second half of the year.Daryll DeWald, chancellor of WSU Health Sciences Spokane, said the institute will have Washington State researchers working with health care providers to bridge the gaps between care and potential treatments of neuro-degenerative diseases. That class of diseases includes ALS and Parkinson’s.The 41-year-old Gleason, who is from Spokane, spent his entire NFL career with the Saints. A special teams standout, he played in 83 games with one start from 2000-07 while spending his last season on injured reserve after knee surgery.On Sept. 25, 2006, Gleason famously blocked a punt by Michael Koenen of Atlanta into the end zone for a Saints touchdown in a 23-3 win — the very night the rebuilt Superdome and city of New Orleans hosted an NFL game for the first time since Hurricane Katrina. The team built a statue honoring the defining moment of his career for a city that desperately needed a lift.Gleason has become an advocate for those with ALS Dexter Williams Jersey , also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease. This is his eighth year with ALS.In responding to the university’s announcement of the building in his name, Gleason posted on Twitter: “Very exciting! Thanks to everyone who helped make this possible. We are just getting started, but I have high expectations. #GoCougs -SG”Last month, Gleason was honored with a Congressional Gold Medal. In receiving the award, Gleason — a father of two — noted, “In many ways, I feel I’ve conquered ALS.” Nobody likes seeing a player get cut, but money talks. With teams only having a certain amount of money that they can spend each season Rock Ya-Sin Jersey , sometimes they have difficult decisions that they have to make in order to sign more talent or to be able to maintain what they have. Some of those cuts are easy, while some can be very difficult. It wasn't until the 2017 offseason, where we really saw some big-time players get cut.Just on the Dallas Cowboys alone, Dez Bryant and Dan Bailey were both cut. Bryant was the No. 1 receiver in Dallas for the past eight seasons, and Bailey is the second most accurate kicker in NFL history. It really proves that no player is safe. Former Cowboys and Titans running back, DeMarco Murray, was cut from the Titans as they decided to move forward with Derrick Henry, as well as sign Dion Lewis. Another one of the biggest players cut this offseason http://www.clevelandbrownsteamonline.com/anthony-zettel-jersey , was Jordy Nelson. Nelson was arguably Aaron Rodgers' favorite target but was let go due to age and a drop in performance. When the Packers were said to be interested in Bryant, Rodgers had some strong words about spending money on another receiver, after moving on from his top target.The point is, no player is safe. Teams do what they can to create cap space, to allow them to spend in the offseason. Sometimes it's done to make room for another player. Other times, it's because of that player's production. We saw it done last year, and we will see more players get cut this season.
