Probably for the best. Lots of respect for him the way he came back, but its not worth risking his future.  I saw an article stating that he earned $160 million in his career.  I would never has guessed it was that much, but good for him.

I'd been hoping he would be our old head back up for Zach or Fields like he was for Mahomes. Dissappointed we didnt pull that off or he wasn't up for it.  Def need some veteran guidance in that QB room...

He wasn't Mahomes backup he was the starter then he went to the Skins the next year. Chad Henne was Mahomes backup QB when Mahomes started in his second year..

This was always going to happen unless he got a chance at a starting job.

He's been well-paid throughout his career. He's not going to risk his leg again for a low-paying backup job.

Either way, he was in the QB room with Mahomes and was setting example for Mahomes in his first training camp, etc.

I agree with the sentiments of everybody here, but I wouldn't be surprised when some starters go down if he signs on the way Cutler did with Miami.  Not much reason for the guy to uproot his family for a lower tier backup job, but if the right situation opens up it might make sense.  The Bradford deal to Minnesota also comes to mind.

No doubt it might have helped but going to a ready made playoff team didn't hurt either..

Good.  

What he did last year was special, amazing even, but he doesn't belong in the NFL anymore, not with his high health risk levels.  

I'm glad he's doing the right thing, retire, enjoy your millions, executive produce your inevitable Disney bio film, be with your family, and maybe, just maybe, he'll still be able to walk and think in ten years.

Jamal probably only player relieved by this.

I give him credit for using the motivation of playing again to rehab and actually give himself a future taking walks with his wife and kids.  He has made 189 million in career earnings and he can still walk.   The idea that he wanted to start again in the NFL was insanely stupid.  

It's amazing how playing pro-sports is like an addictive drug to these guys.   I'm glad he finally came to his senses.  He has a great future ahead of him and thankfully he can still walk.

OTC has him making $210 m over his career. Not bad!

All for teams that wear red.  Not sure what that means, but I figure if he comes back, it will have to be with the Cardinals.

Didn't realize until now that last year Douglas drafted Uhtred of Bebbanburg / Uhtred Ragnarsson.

I guess that's kind of cool. Would be even cooler if his performance in practice warranted activating him for a football game.

Hoped we'd bring him in in that Josh McCown roll. Honestly rather not see him play again though. It's an inspiration he made it all the way back to win some games last year. Nothing left to prove risking it. Hope him a happy retirement, seems like one of the few legitimate class acts in the NFL recently

Makes a lot of sense. He has plenty of money and overcame that challenge that may have left him wondering. Nothing left to accomplish at this point. Not worth the risks.

Alex Smith saw our OL and was like “yeah I like having both my legs. Pass”

I can see him unretire if a QB gets hurt 

For his and his family sake I sure hope you are wrong.

He was a great human interest story last year but he's not an NFL QB anymore. Riverboat Ron said he feared his leg exploding any time a play broke down and he took a hard hit.

Very hard to tell someone who has trained their entire life for this goal to just stop and do something else. When it's over, it's OVER.
