25 year-old Devin Thomas has retired from the NFL
I have decided to retire from the NFL.
God has blessed me w achieving a childhood dream. I want to give back to my hometown and coach/mentor kids so they can reach their own. 1LUV.
With the rise of concussion related suicides and deaths, I can't say that I blame him. O.J. Murdock was just 25 years-old himself when he committed suicide a few weeks ago. I think he has made a great decision, that will keep his good health and good looks intact.
"What am I risking when I step onto the field?" he said. "Do I want to be in a position where I can't play with my kids? Do I want to end up leaving the game with all kinds of brain damage where I can't remember things? It's a good time for me to step away."
"I'm at a good age where I'm still healthy," he added. "I had my own injuries that I can account to, when I almost thought I broke my neck, concussions. Everybody glorifies this game, says it's so great. It's definitely something people put you on a plateau. But they don't understand the sacrifices you make personally. As a young man that understands the bigger picture, I know this game doesn't define me."
Kudos, Devin!! You dang sure have a career in modeling. #ladiesbehold Invest well my friend.
