The constant legal trouble had to have caught up with him. If he ever returned to football, he would be booed and the entire league would watch him. It’s a lot of pressure for a guy that knows his life needs a fresh start.
And much like Rolando McClain, walking away to get things right is the best thing. Some men hold onto the hope of football for way too long. Brent knows that it’s over and it was time to walk away.
I hope he finds peace in his decision.
