    With his physical running style and how much trouble he has staying healthy these days, this is a wise move. He probably had maybe about 16-20 games of quality play left on the odometer. Fun guy to watch.

    Get used to it...guys are going to start retiring younger and younger as we are learning more about the brain trauma that seemingly all football players have.

    That's the ideal situation for the NFL. Come to the league, make some plays, get a big check and get out early so fresh (cheap) guys can come in behind you.

    He's retiring. Great.

    Why announce it during the Super Bowl?

    Guess he only spent what he made in endorsements. Isn't it believe that Gronk has been doing the same?

    Well, he never spent any on interview coaches.

    Sounds like he could reach terms with the Raiders very soon.

    Listening to talk show, as soon as he is reinstated, he counts $9m towards the cap of Seattle and the year he retired, he received a $2.5m signing bonus Seattle may want back.
