    Browns went from dead last at 100:1 to 15:1. That's a huge jump.

    Antonio Brown of the Raiders wants to use his old helmet. Well, he could do that last year, but not this year. This year he needs to wear a helmet that the NFL and the NFLPU tested to provide better protection for their players. Concussions are down and that's a great thing for the NFL.

    He burns his feet in the ice chamber then wont practice while bitching about his helmet situation. I'm sure the raiders feel good about their big trade accusation.

    Is Kaepernick on a team this year? Will he make the cut?

    As long as he shows up for Game 1 vs the Denver Broncos, it will all work out OK. For now it's a clown show to get himself out of practice.

    They were 4 - 12 without Luck last year. This year seems like more of the same. I can see him taking a year off and then rejoining a team as a free agent if he want's to do that. Luck is a smart dude and he has opportunities outside of football with that Stanford degree and all his contacts.

    Retiring at age 29.
    Over-hyped potential that never developed into results.
    He's laughing all the way to the bank.

    That was 2017, last year he did pretty good. From what I understand if you retire under contract to a team then they own your rights if you get reinstated within your contract period or forever.

    I think he is done, he majored in architecture and comes from money plus all he made playing to. The funny thing watching his speech and being wire out and lost his love of the game, my health has me worn out and theres no love anymore but yeah still poor so better keep working.

    The colts blew his talent just like they blew his retirement announcement and all his injuries, cant blame him for wanting out of that shit hole. Drunk blow hard Irsay was quoted saying Luck walked away from $500 million in future contracts so if he played 10 more years that's $50 million per year.

    I think he had good talent not top QB talent but had they protected him and gave him good weapons I think he still would be playing but yes he is laughing to the bank.

    He’s a different guy. Had one car he shared with his other half. At one time, it was a Prius. Had a small condo in downtown Indy (Mass Ave area). Famously used a flip phone forever. Would ride a bike to get groceries.

    He didn’t appear to care much about money.

    I am sad to see someone go who was so obviously in love with the game. I think he represents what every fan hopes players are really like.

    Kind of related, but what if there was a max of 5 years for players before mandatory retirement?

    Yep, you're right. 4-12 in 2017 and 10-6 in 2018.

    Nah, the cowboys win it in a walk. Brady and Bill are broken men and both retire to live out their years in assisted care facilities and Kraft is in prison for human trafficking.

    HOF guys like Montana and Young are still working despite having making tons of money in the game. Some guys like Favre walk away, but still do endorsements. Luck might have made enough to not need to work again, but I think he'll do something else with his education and aspirations.

    Working by choice doing what they enjoy or want to do with zero pressure is very different than what everyone else gets to deal with.

    I have zero issues with a guy like Luck retiring and can't blame him for wanting to protect his body as it is a very damaging sport.
