Great player that I loved watching. Seems to be a quality person to. Smart that he walks away while he still can, concussions is not to be taken lightly.

Re: Kuechly Retires

One, this is beyond a blow (huge, major, whatever) to that defense. He was the best player on the field, by far.

Two, kudos for him to walk away, but...

Three, I won't be remotely surprised to see him looking for work in 2021 with a non**** team

Kuechly Retires

Luke was a solid as a pick in the draft class as ever. What’s weird is Andrew luck was the #1 overall - retired also . RG3 back up Trent Richardson. Retired. Matt kalil done Justin Blackmon prison? Ryan Tannehill. Ooooh yea. Now this is the saints 2012 draft class
Alien hicks—3rd rd
Nick Toon—— 4th rd
Corey White —5th rd
Andrew Tiller—6th rd
Marcel Jones—7th rd
That’s right no first or 2 nd rd picks thanks Mark Ingram in 2011 .

I think he sees the writing on the wall... going to be rebuilding for a few years. What’s the point of taking a beating every week for a team going back to the building phase.

Really hurts Carolina, they have no QB on offense or defense now.

This rings true to me. Ding. Ding. I believe we have a winner!

Re: Kuechly Retires

Good to see him putting his health over the money. Better him walk away with his mind than end up in a wheelchair being spoon fed. A concussion really is bad but multiple concussions over an 8 year period, that's scary.

Re: Kuechly Retires

Andrew Luck
Luke Kuechly
Patrick Willis
Chris Borland
Gronk
Mega tron etc ...

You'll continue to see more athletes retiring before age 30.

The NFL is a violent game and a daily grind.

** EDIT Add Saints Zach Line as of today (1/15/20).
