Matt Millen In Need of Heart Transplant

Matt Millen is currently in a New Jersey hospital. According to Peter King, he is in desperate need of a heart transplant. King recorded an episode of his podcast with Millen earlier this week. It will drop on Wednesday. He says Millen is in good spirits.

The former Detroit Lions GM left his job at the Big Ten Network in October amid health concerns. Millen was diagnosed with amyloidosis last spring. It is a condition that originates in the bone marrow and can result in abnormal proteins in any tissue or organ.

Since leaving the Detroit Lions, Millen has covered the NFL for ESPN and NFL Network. He joined the Big Ten Network as a game analyst working alongside Kevin Kuglar since 2015.
