Thread: R. Mendenhall "Why I Retired At 26"

  1. #11
    Excerpt from the article.
    "So when they ask me why I want to leave the NFL at the age of 26, I tell them that I've greatly enjoyed my time, but I no longer wish to put my body at risk for the sake of entertainment. I think about the rest of my life and I want to live it with much quality. And physically, I am grateful that I can walk away feeling as good as I did when I stepped into it."

    He's been to the top of the mountain already with a SB ring, made his money, etc. This is the smart move to not play in the NFL for 10+ years knowing the toll it takes on the body and the level of performance that is expected from the team, media, and fanbase.
