WATCH: NFL Hall of Famer gets very emotional after announcing he will donate his brain to CTE Research

Former Miami Dolphins linebacker Nick Buoniconti announced on Friday that he will posthumously donate his brain for chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE) research.

A visibly distressed Buoniconti said that he would pledge his brain to the Boston University CTE Center and Concussion Legacy Foundation to support further research on chronic traumatic encephalopathy.

"This is not easy, it's difficult. I'm not half the man I used to be," said Buoniconti at a Boston University press conference.

"I don't do this for myself. I do it for the thousands of others who will follow me.

"My life, as I know it, has been taken away from me. ... I hope that my story and contribution will help thousands of others who are in this journey, or who will follow me."

In July, Dr. Ann McKee, a neuropathologist, examined the brains of 202 deceased football players. A broad survey of her findings were published in The Journal of the American Medical Association.

Of the 202 players, 111 of them played in the N.F.L. — and 110 of those were found to have chronic traumatic encephalopathy, or C.T.E., the degenerative disease believed to be caused by repeated blows to the head.

Buoniconti played 13 seasons in the NFL from 1962 to 1976. He was a key member of the Dolphins' Super Bowl teams in 1972 and 1973 and he was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2001.
