    I don't see him retiring because he is on his rookie contract still. I see him trying to come back because some team will offer him a decent deal still with some guarnteed money. So he is going to want to at least get one more contact with guarnteed money and a lot of incentives to make more. This way even if he can find away to have one more good season it could get him one last good pay check.

    Guy had a chance to be the face of the Bengals and couldn’t catch a break. Bummed for him and the Bengals.

    I know I was wanting the Bengals to take OJ Howard because I wanted them to use more TE sets. Now I wish even more that they took Howard, especially since Ross is still injury prone like in college.

    I feel bad for him, he will be extremely luck to be able to do anything he enjoys in life after his short stint in the NFL. Is it worth it?

    I was aboard the OJ Howard train as well.

    I was reading there was speculation this could be a spinal fusion. They said timeline to return is 4-6 months and surgery for a simple disc is 6-8 weeks. It could be a career ender if it is a spinal fusion.

    It wouldn't surprise me if Eifert retired. I think he'll try and come back and play, but it wouldn't surprise me. He's made smart choices though. He helped found an outdoor apparel company called Yudu. I don't really know how that is going, but he's an avid bow hunter so it wouldn't surprise me if he used his fame from football to venture into the outdoor industry.

    If it is spinal fusion, which I heard on 1530 today, he should just retire. Your body is talking to you, time to listen and move on to your next career.
