The following is a link to an article about the leaking of Josh Freeman’s medical records, all of which should be preventable or very significantly preventable as it isn’t always possible to eliminate all risk, Leaking of Josh Freeman’s medical records damages players’ relations with NFL. Obviously an investigation and damage control are in process. I recommend that the NFL, all teams and the Players Union get together and come to agreement on processes and procedures for how player’s medical and other private records are stored and protected from improper disclosure. There are plenty of professionals who can be retained to develop and monitor the processes and procedures.
