    "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.

    And you know this how?That's right..anything to keep the selfish dream alive. It was a general statement. It is a ploy.

    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.

    I can see Carr retiring. He won't be a starter for his next team and that team certainly is not going to be so forgiving of all his short-comings on the field.
    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.

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