For those wondering or those who have no clue,At rookie mini camp this past weekend I suffered another concussion. With this concussion happening so soon after the concussion I had in January at the senior bowl, it left many people concerned including family, doctors, and myself about my health and future if I were to continue playing. With that being said, after having an MRI done, along with multiple tests and a history of quite a few collisions as a fullback, the doctor and I came into agreement that it would be in my best interest for my football career to go ahead and come to an end. I know that God has a plan for everything and I love my wife and daughter way too much to risk my future with them. To all of my friends, family, and fans, I love y'all too and want to say thank y'all for all of your support over my years of playing football. God bless.
