Mike Pouncey: I Don’t Need Mental Health Evaluation


Mike Pouncey may not believe he has any mental health issues, but he’s not going to play another down until he chooses to talk to someone about his mental health.

Following the Dolphins‘ first day of OTAs, Pouncey was asked by a reporter about the specifics of that evaluation, which comes in the wake of the Dolphins‘ bullying scandal.

“I have no clue, but I don’t think I need that,” Pouncey said, according to The Miami Herald. “I don’t think I do.”

Commissioner Roger Goodell said at the Annual League Meeting that the NFL and NFL Players Association agreed that medical evaluations were the “right first step.”

“Depending on what the doctors prescribe for that, that could prevent them from being around football for some period of time,” Goodell said, via The Palm Beach Post. “But that’s a medical decision.”

Pouncey has already made it clear that he has no regrets about the Dolphins scandal.
