    I had no idea he even had concussion problems. Shows how much I care about the rest of the league. Good for him man. Retire early and enjoy life

    Good player. Can't forgive him for the Gronk play so I cant say I'm sad to see him go.

    It's his fault Clete Blakeman kept the flag in his pocket?

    You're forgetting - Blakeman picked up the flag that was thrown. Way different from keeping it in his pocket. One of the worst pick-ups ever. It really made me wonder if the fix was in on that game.

    Sure, but he also walks away without further damaging his brain, and not destroying his future earnings potential. Maybe he'll be the next Tony Romo, who knows? If not there's the usual ways to make money: write a book, give some lectures, sign some memorabilia, etc.

    Yep, they are going through a total rebuild, which is why I thought they may move on from him regardless.

    I forgot about Willis but you are right. He retired in his prime. Seeing that clip posted above of him sitting there crying was hard to watch.

    High draft picks will get that rookie money with the 5th year option plus a 2nd contract and GTFO of the NFL, that’s a trend we have to get used to it.

    I doubt it. The guys smart enough to call it quits are still the exception rather than the rule.

    For the trauma to be so deep it makes a grown man cry he should have quit immediately with no regrets. No profession is worth that kind of sacrifice.

    When I saw the MNF game in Charlotte (the one where Gronk was mauled in the end zone at the end and the picked up the flag). One of the big things that stood out was that Luke Keuchly is a freaking beast: super-talented non-stop high effort. I don't think I've ever seen someone with an engine like that in person.

    Yeah I am sure this is a situation the NFL is monitoring closely and not that they would ever admit cannot be happy about. Having more and more "face of the league" guys hanging it up in their prime is not going to help with soccer moms signing up little Johnny for football over soccer.
