Old Mossy Horns
He retired today
I hadn't watched the video, but I would make the some bet. For some one to just quit, there's a major factor behind it.Watch the video of his announcement. He got told some bad news, and made the best decision he could make from it. That boy wants to play football and could play on any team he wants, but he made a smart decision, against his wishes, based on something I’m willing to bet, a brain surgeon or the like, told him.
In the video you can tell he’s been advised to step away for the sake of his health despite himself wanting to still play.I think he got out because he wants to live healthy. No ulterior motives or team politics!
Yes and nearly every other job in which health is sacrificed is FAR more important than entertaining people through your physical demise. I may be in the minority, but my health and wellbeing doesn't have a price.Lot people sacrifice their health in jobs for WAY less money. Most all football players retire in better health than coal miners who retire.
They'll pay CMC what he deserves and it may break the RB contract record but I doubt, relatively speaking, that it will be as much as we all think because of the short shelf life of NFL RB's (the lowest of any position in the NFL).From a front office standpoint, if they dump Cam, that really frees up a ton of money to both pay McCaffrey what he deserves and go after some good replacements.
If I was Cincinnati, I would do anything to sucker a team like Carolina into a trade that would get a bunch of future #1 picks and their best players. While everyone is going wild over Burrows, he was just an average QB until the right coordinator came along. He broke the championship TD record of Heisman trophy winner Matt Leinart. The NFL is filled with Heisman busts. There is no guarantee that his skills will transfer well in the NFL. Or that Brady's schemes will transfer to the NFL.It may be a pipedream but if I were Carolina, I would do everything in my power to boost my draft position in order to have a shot at Burrow. A QB is the #1 need currently and on top of that, you just hired the guy that made him a Heisman Trophy winning QB. He'll know Joe Brady's system and he'll already be ahead of the game. I'm throwing the kitchen sink to try and get that pick.
He's not an old man sacrificing his health...........he's 28 and probably has another 60'ish years to live. He's doing it right! He's going out by his own decision rather than being carted off the field.Lot people sacrifice their health in jobs for WAY less money. Most all football players retire in better health than coal miners who retire.
