9 NFL Greats Who Need to Retire this Offseason

nfl greats who need to retire this offseason

This off-season, the NFL has a number of players that are flirting with retirement, and for good reason. NFL greats can only stay great for so long, and despite having strong careers without scandal or trauma, there comes a time when you’re simply too old to play in the NFL. Further, there are also players who HAVE been marred by scandal, and they should probably pack their bags as well.

NFL careers are notoriously short, due to both the level at which players must perform, and susceptibility to injury. An NFL great on the back nine of their career can see the wheels fall off in very short order.
