    Luke Kuechly Retires

    Kuechly is retiring at 28 years old. He is one of if not the best MLB in the NFL. He was also healthy. This is a big shock

    Not that shocking anymore honestly when notable players in their prime just decide to retire one day.

    Wow. Kind of reminds me of when Patrick Willis retired.

    At some point, you kind of donít want to take that beating anymore.

    That was in 2016. Kuechly had a concussion at the end of the 2015 season that made him miss the last 3 games. It was a year later and another one that looked real bad. To see a tough guy who was one of the premier players in the NFL crying as he's carted away hit everyone hard. That moment pushed the NFL into doing more about head trauma. They couldn't just keep ignoring it after that hit every news cast.

    If I remember correctly, Patrick Willis was already on a steep decline when he retired, so this to me is a little more shocking because Luke Kuechly is still the gold standard for elite linebackers. When you think about it, if you are one of the few talented enough players to snag a ridiculous contract, it really doesn't make that much sense to play through a third contract, if the indeed you are worried about your long-term health. At some point, the extra millions of dollars isn't worth the risk when you are already loaded

    I wish him the best. This is a tough decision, but I respect him for doing what he feels is best for his family and for his long-term health.

    Very surprising when you think about it, but probably the right move for him.
    He may open the door for others especially those who have had similar injuries

    With his concussion history he's making the right call.
