Dick Butkus Promotes 'Clean' Play without SteroidsFormer Chicago Bears linebacker Dick Butkus has not changed in many ways ever since he left the football field 38 years ago.

The days of Butkus on the field may be over but he is now making every possible effort to curb steroid use among young athletes.

“The plain truth is, if you use steroids for a prolonged period of time, you’ll probably be a heart patient, die early or both,” Butkus said.
