Yep. Megatron gets a severe concussion thats going to effect him for the rest of his life he needs to walk away.

I'll miss the highlight reel catches and great games but football is a game. No need to effect the next 50 years of your life with devastating conditions. Wouldn't blame him a bit.

He's made enough money. Go live life.


He's given his all for his for a couple years now. If he chose to walk away that's fine.

I'd applaud Arian Foster or JJ Watt if they walked away. More to life than just a game, you know?

I'd ESPECIALLY be grateful if Foster walked away. Guy is such a bright young guy, it would be downright painful to see him try to continue and take more abuse, and end up punch drunk and not as sharp as he is now...

Well lets say its an elite talent-Revis type CB or Sanders type RB and they have only played 1 or 2 years but you know they are destined for great things. Once in a lifetime talent. Yet they suffer a devastating concussion.

Would you want them to continue on with their careers or walk away from it all?

I'd be disappointed that we lost our best player to an injury that could have been prevented.

Also, if a player has to retire from an injury is there some sort of compensation the NFL can grant, like late draft picks and the like?

I assume if the Texans lost JJ Watt, they would only have gotten 2 years out of the 11th Overall pick and lost one of the best defensive players in the league. Surely there must be some sort of protocol to maintain the parity that draft picks are supposed to provide.

I'd respect him for being smart enough to walk away when he felt he needed to.

They can have Sedrick Ellis, from the Saints.

Seriously though, IDK if there is anything like that in place. I mean, what if a team just picked an injury prone player? Why should they be compensated for that? Players wouldn't fall in the draft due to injury concerns nearly as much as they do if something like this were in place. Part of the challenge in building a roster is making things work when you lose guys.

You wouldn't him? Even if he accidentally the whole thing?

Well, I mean I don't know who the Ravens' best player is right now but if he got a concussion I would feel bad for him that he had to end his career, but also feel good that he chose to put his life before a game.

Yeah, there's no way that the NFL would compensate a team for that. Otherwise, you'd have to include every player who suffers an injury that essentially ends their careers. And then what about teams who have a player who suffers an injury and never fully recovers enough to be back at what they once were (think: Eric Berry not returning to 100%), etc. It'd have a gigantic trickle down effect.

So the short answer is no: the NFL is never going to compensate a team for losing a player due to injuries.

Jahvid Best. I would be just fine if he walked away from it all right now.

Very sad both becauser my team lost a great player and bad for the player because he is being forced out of the game before his time.

Peterson wouldnt walk away, therefore, this scenario isnt plausible. If he were to walk away, you would think this injury would be one to consider walking away from.
