Charles Woodson weighs in on Andrew Luck's sudden NFL retirement
Charles Woodson knows all too well about the wear and tear of the NFL, and he took time to weigh in on the sudden retirement of Andrew Luck.
Seemingly out of nowhere, Luck announced his retirement from the NFL Saturday night after seven years in the league. Luck cited a number of reasons why, but the decision was ultimately a surprise.
On Sunday, Woodson took time to weigh in on the sudden announcement. The Michigan legend and Heisman winner went on to have an ultra-successful 18-year career with the Green Bay Packers and Oakland Raiders. However, Woodson indicated Sunday he almost cut his career short.
In a tweet, Woodson claimed he thought about retiring after just eight seasons in the league but eventually decided against it. In the end, he knows he made the right decision but offered respect to Luck:
I seriously thought about retiring after year 8. After a series of phone calls to close family and friends I decided to press on. This game can weigh on you heavily. I made the best decision for me and Luck has made the best for him! #Respect #igetit
