    He sounds like he is in a good place. Nothing wrong with moving on from football with his health and wealth intact.

    you mean because i didnt coddle his ass because he was making millions of dollars being treated like a slave and supported bin laden like you did?
    you mean like how he didnt support his team while inactive and didnt show up to cheer from the sidelines?

    Strange how every complaint you bring up has zero to do with his play on the field.

    As far as I'm aware players are neither drafted for the personality they portray to fans, or for their inner-most thoughts. That he should get 'bashed' for both shows that maybe the expectation of the regular Joe needs to be looked at, not the player themself.

    still struggling with the quote button..

    why the hell would you look up to or worship any of these guys?

    and who supported Bin Laden...besides the Bush's and the CIA but that's another story for another forum.

    wonder if the story about how Arians wanted to feature Ellington a lot more next year, factored in his decision. That story came out about a week before Mendenhall's announcement. Anyway... good luck Rashad, he'll probably be on DWTS.

    I doubt it... it sounds like he didn't like being "on the job" 24/7. The younger generation loves social media and letting us know everything that's on their mind. Mend seems like the type to question the masses and fan's aren't FANS of that type of thinking.

    Must be nice to wake up one day and quit your job at 26 with a few mill in the bank.

    Social media.... Providing people an incredibly easy way to display ignorance and poor judgement in front of millions.
