Great for him. Football's not everything and it's not worth your life. I enjoy the game as much as anyone else, but life is much more interesting, which football is a part of. Seeing a guy who has a plan after football is one aspect I like about the game.
Sydney rice retires after 7 years

The difference was after that season he kept getting hurt.
He never played in all 16 games before 2009, and only once after 2009 (it was 2012)...
He never broke 800 yards in any year except 2009 when he had 1312 and 83 rec. (the highest hes had after that was 50 rec. and 748 yards in 2012)
so 2 full years as a starter and one was a great season, the other wasn't so great...
2009 was his only year and you have to give a great amount of credit to that to Brett Favre

LOL @ the morons in this thread attributing Rice's pro bowl season in 09 to Brett Favre. You know what? Favre had 1 good year after leaving the Packers and it was when he had a healthy Rice to throw to. Hell, watch the highlights, it's just Favre wildly flinging the ball in his general direction and Rice making unbelievable plays on it.
