Former Buffalo Bills player Eric Wood’s life took a huge turn after a neck injury ruined his football career.

He had just signed a contract extension and expected to play every snap before he was hurt.

Now, Wood has pivoted to writing, and his book “Tackle What’s Next” has helped him plan his future and express the life lessons that he has learned.

“I am here to show you many lessons that can make an exciting transition,” the football star told KTLA’s Sam Rubin. “I believe that truly your ‘what’s next in life’ can be your best yet and we all have the capability to reach that,” he said.

Although he no longer plays football for the Bills, he still plays a big part for the team and has since become their commentator.

You can preorder Eric’s new book “Tackle What’s Next” now and it will hit bookshelves Oct. 11. You can listen to “What’s Next with Eric Wood” wherever you get your podcasts.
