Chris Draft's release from the St. Louis Rams before the 2009 opener came as a bit of a surprise.

The veteran linebacker spent that season with Buffalo, went to camp with Washington in 2010 and was out of the league last season.

Draft was needed far more elsewhere last season. His wife, Keasha, was dying of lung cancer. Draft had proposed to her following her diagnosis. The website for Draft's foundation links to remembrances.

Jeremy Schaap's piece, available in the video above, tells their story.
