With former Football stars Brandon Marshall, Adam "Pacman" Jones, and Marshawn Lynch on the "I am Athlete" show, White revealed that at the age of 34, he nearly lost his life.
Four years ago, White had a heart attack. "I had two stents injected into my heart because my LAD was blocked and I needed them to restore blood flow.
