James Brown Tears Up During Emotional Pregame Segment (Video)

  • Dan Fogarty

James Brown of the NFL Today became visibly emotional during a segment on late Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Chris Henry.

Henry’s mother, Carolyn Henry Glasby, was featured on the segment, and talked about the recipients of her son’s organs. Henry died last December when he fell from the back of a moving vehicle.

The segment ends with a meeting between Henry and the families of those who received her son’s organs. When cameras cut back to Brown in the studio, he musters a “wow” before being overcome by emotion.

Boomer Esiason then took over the segment, and shared his experiences as the father of a cystic fibrosis patient, before getting a little misty-eyed himself. A very moving TV moment.
