Former Patriots center Bryan Stork sat out the 2016 season after his time in New England ended, and it sounds like his days in the NFL might be over.

The 26-year old officially announced his retirement, quoting Kenny Rogers in a statement he posted to Twitter, where he let everyone know of his intentions to hang up his cleats:

The likely reason behind his decision may stem from the fact Stork suffered four documented concussions over his career, and if that’s true, credit the former fourth-round pick in 2014 with putting himself first and making the wise decision to walk away.

While he may have only played two seasons in the league, Stork can walk away having enjoyed being at the pinnacle of the NFL, having won a championship during his rookie season.  Best wishes to him as he begins his retirement.
