    Devin thomas retires

    Devin Thomas retiring at 25. Wow, this is strange.

    He must have listened to Curtis Martin last night.

    Good for him. Considering he's likely be floundering on special teams for the rest of his career, and the fact he's already reached the peak of the NFL - why not?

    He's still young enough (and healthy enough) to pursue whatever career he wants.

    I really liked this guy. I hated to see him go. He was a VERY good special teams player....always the first to reach the ball carrier. I will miss this guy.

    WOW...didn't see that coming. Was he injured or something? He's only 25 years old. There's got to be a good reason.

    Surprising, something else that we don't know about going on here.
    No one remembers who came in second.

    What makes you think that? He could just not like football.

    Reporter who spoke with him indicated a neck injury he received last december made him think twice about playing again. Anyone remember it?

    Well, it could be that he doesn't like football after all these year playing it, but it is awfully tough for anyone to find a job that comes close to the minimum earned by NFL players. Even Curtis Martin, notable for not liking football, hung in for all those years for the money. The post about the neck injury above shed some light in the direction I was thinking. I just found it odd for a 25 year old with 5 or so good years ahead would just hang it up without an injury scare or something like that hanging out there.
