Default Plummer announces retirement (now what)

http://msn.foxsports.com/nfl/story/6...40813162&ATT=5

So with the missing banner, what does this mean if anything.

"I wanted to come in and tell you guys on camera and face-to-face that the speculation can stop tonight," Plummer said from the Denver Athletic Club. "You can know by the looking in my face and hearing my words that I am retiring from the NFL. At 32 years old, I'm running away from the game. Not in fear or fright, but health-wise. I'm healthy. I'm happy. I have a lot to look forward to in my life."

When is the last time you saw a professional athlete retire because they didn't get their way, only to unretire?EVERYTIME.

Because the preponderance of evidence these days points to the fact that when a guy retires in any sport and he is still young enough to play AND he didn't get what he wanted when he retired..a trade, more money, a championship, etc, etc...he will come back under the guise of "a perfect situation" or "love of the game." I'm not saying I want him here. I'm just thinking he is peeved.

The days of him being coddled are over.

He's made out like a bandit money-wise here, so why put yourself through more humiliation with subpar performance. Just invest it wisely, call it a day and live off the interest.
Then find something you're good at and enjoy life.

How am I hating ? I could care less what he does when he leaves! I was just giving the Carr jockey's a hard time.

I am going to go with Barry Sanders with Plummer. And Sanders was universally loved.
