Devin Thomas retires at the age of 25
 
After just four years in the league, former second-round draft pick Devin Thomas has gotten all he needs out of football. He's walking away from the game.
He announced it himself on Twitter.
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.

There should be a rule that says it's impossible to retire before you are 35. Any younger and it's considered quitting.

You have a point.

if he has managed his NFL money well he can live comfortably. he has a superbowl ring already, that may have stolen some of his drive. and for a mediocre receiver it may not have left him enough to make the team.
also he has suffered an injury where at first was thought he broke his neck. i guess that can put things in prespective.
i wish i could have retired at 25 and they could have called it quitting or anything else they wanted. and i would have whole heartedly agreed as i was drinking ice cold beer from the shore of a costa rican beach.
