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.

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.
