Yeah to be the third string DT and come in for about 1 third of the plays and a couple of ST units for 500k a year sounds like a pretty good option to me.

You guys realize how much physical work the players have to put in? If you didn't want to play, you would still have to go to all the workouts, practice with the team, memorize playbooks, study film, go to meetings, etc. It's just too much to do when there are jobs that require far less that pay well. Obviously not as much as the NFL but he wouldn't have to work as hard. And if he doesn't want to play, the idea of doing all that work seems like it would suck.

You gotta respect him for doing what he wants and not just for the money. If he hates doing it he'd be more happy making alot less doing something he loves.

WOW... It's always sad to see a hall of fame player stop playing because of any issue, I wish Quinn the best and I know we will see him in Canton in the years to come.

Why even focus on Favre when you have news like this... The balance of power goes to the NFC after this.

500k a year to sit in the best seats in the house, work out to my physical peak and sit in on team meetings etc. I could do it.

trust me, its not for everyone. I know exactly how quinn feels. I had some offers to play ball at some small schools in college, but I knew I wouldn't be able to do it as soon as my last game was done my senior year of high school. when you're burnt out, you're burnt out, and there's really no other way to describe it. there's so much more to life other than football, and nobody likes to be stuck in a career that they can't stand to wake up to.it also still pisses me off that the dolphins went after ricky williams' bonus money, essentially holding him financially hostage and forcing him to come back and play at the veteran minimum. especially for a guy with social anxiety disorder who hated being famous and being in the spotlight in the first place. sure, he quit in the middle of a contract, but how much money did the dolphins make off of his name in terms of merchandising and sales? still irks me to this day.

I used to get up a 5am and run and workout before school, then I'd work afterward at a supermarket to pay for my membership to a gym / equipment then I used to come home and work out and do homework.

I did this for 6 years and stopped last year when I started Uni and a better job. I used to box and play soccer as well as getting almost straight Bs and As. I know that hardwork something like that takes.

I can understand wanting to quit, all I am saying is that if all I had to do was work out and cop a beating and get paid for it I'd do it. Hell I used to do probably as much study as the average NFL player does of his playbook and I used to have to spend money to take my beatings.

I can empathise with him though, if I didn't love what I was doing I wouldn't have done it, hell when I lost my love for it I quit.

Probably lost the love for the game or he knew he was going to spend his whole career standing on the sidelines so he wanted to find a new profession.
