 NFL Star Has Announced Retirement After Only Four Years In The League, Their Reason Will…

Nasir Adderley, a Los Angeles Chargers safety, announced his retirement on Thursday after only four seasons in the NFL.

The athlete, 25, was selected in the second round of the 2019 NFL Draft. According to ESPN, he recently became an unrestricted free agent and is not expected to be re-signed.

Adderley’s retirement comes after Miami Dolphins cornerback Byron Jones issued a warning to NFL players last month to avoid taking “pills” and “injections,” claiming that doing so caused him to suffer injuries that have left him impaired.

“After a period of self reflection, I have decided it’s time for me to walk away from the game of football,” Adderley wrote on Instagram. “Over the past couple of years I have denied this realization, but I’m finally going to put myself first for once. My health is above anything and everyone around me knows that.”

“Truly over-standing my purpose has given me the confidence knowing I don’t belong [sic] an employee anymore. My purpose involves spending more time with my loved ones, business ownership and chasing my passion of true liberation,” Adderley continued. “With that being said, it has been a dream come true to play in the NFL and have the opportunity to play for the Chargers organization. I believe I have yet to scratch the surface of the player I could be, but if it’s at the expense of my peace of mind then it’s no longer for me.”


Jones made the remarks while highlighting a 2015 NFL tweet that showed his record-breaking jump at the NFL combine.

“Much has changed in 8 years. Today I can’t run or jump because of my injuries sustained playing this game,” Jones tweeted. “DO NOT take the pills they give you. DO NOT take the injections they give you. If you absolutely must, consult an outside doctor to learn the long-term implications.”

“It was an honor and privilege to play in the NFL but it came at a regrettable cost I did not foresee,” he continued. “In my opinion, no amount of professional success or financial gain is worth avoidable chronic pain and disabilities. Godspeed to the draft class of 2023.”


In all honesty, good for him.

I pray he has a productive life and makes a positive contribution to his community in the future.
