Joe Barksdale considered taking his life midway through last season.
But when his mind meanders to a dark place, playing the guitar pulls him back into the light.
Barksdale, 30, said playing guitar serves as a form of therapy to help him deal with bouts of depression that have haunted him since childhood. Now in his eighth NFL season, Barksdale takes medication and is in therapy for depression.
