The three-time Pro Bowler last played for the Falcons in the 2020 season, after spending his first five years with the Rams. Gurley was among the NFL’s most prolific offensive players before knee injuries unfortunately derailed his career.
While speaking to NFL Network’s Andrew Siciliano earlier this week, Gurley stated that he’s done with football, though he hasn’t officially retired.
Siciliano wanted to clarify with Gurley and asked “You’re done, right, you’re not coming back?” Gurley responded “Most definitely.”
On Friday evening, however, Gurley posted a simple two-word tweet which seemingly indicates that he hasn’t truly decided to stop playing football.
The Falcons decided to take a chance on Gurley in 2020, signing the former Ram to a one-year contract. Gurley mustered a career-low 678 rushing yards for four touchdowns, and he averaged just 3.5 yards per carry.
Gurley appeared to be on a Hall of Fame trajectory early in his career, racking up three 1,000-yard seasons over his first four years. He led the NFL in touchdowns during the 2017 and 2018 seasons with 13 and 17, respectively.
He won Offensive Player of the Year honors in 2017 after posting 2,093 yards of offense and 19 total touchdowns, leading the Rams to their first playoff berth in 13 seasons. He also played a pivotal role in helping L.A. reach Super Bowl 53, where they fell to Tom Brady’s New England Patriots.
If this is truly the end of Gurley’s career, his final stat line is this: 6,082 rushing yards, 67 rushing touchdowns, 243 receptions, 2,254 receiving yards and 12 rushing touchdowns. Only time will tell us if Gurley is truly done playing football, or if another team out there will decide to give him another chance.
