Mendenhall, sick of the NFL life, retires

His statement sounds reasonable to me. Whether they like it or not, athletes are in the entertainment business, and so subject to the public eye. At least football players get to perform with their faces mostly covered; think how much worse a basketball player or tennis player has it. Some people like the fame and notoriety, some don't. He sounds like he's thought this through and is not just going crazy. I wish him well.

He played well when healthy but everyone knows a RB takes a beating. He seems to be looking ahead.

Good Luck to him!

Mendenhall's farewell letter posted online was extremely thoughtful - dude absolutely gets it. Good on him.
