could be a number of reasons, realised he could have more important things to attend to outside of the sport, could just not want to play it anymore. Age matters not when retiring from a sport.

Right, but its not common for a great running back at the age of 27 to retire. Early thirties-mid thirties is more like it.

Not cool, but good luck to him and whatever he wants to do.

It is kind of strange that he would want to retire coming off the amazing year he had last year, but it's possible that he just wants to get out of the game while he can still walk around without excrutiating pain. Many retired running backs have a horrible time getting around because of the beatings they've put their bodies through.

He will be back, once the money runs out. He's a "bling" kind of man.

retired to get his life on, and smoke pot and say screw the NFL. HE's got enough money if he invests right to live well the rest of his life. Hes not a money hungry dude he was happy when he wasnt rich. He played 5 yrs plus college and before that. I think he has had enough. He wants to have fun not work all day everyday. Iam a Bills fan so good bye Ricky.

i read an article saying how his abrupt retirement just shows the same selfish behavior he showed for years. The sports writer spent the whole article talking about all the negativity that Ricky had in his career. The most of it dealt with him smoking weed. Oh my god no how terrible...there is guys in every league that shoot up all type of shit. Way worse than weed (not condoning it though). Ricky is a intravert, he never liked the spotlight, never really like talking to the media. I believe he love the game of football, but not the politics and corruption that might be invovled in the NFL..People can say Oh he is crazy to pass up that kind of money, but how much is your piece of mind worth. Yes he is a talented football player and his talent will be going to waste for the next few years but he is a man first. If he is no longer happy playing the game I think he owes it to himself and noone else to bow out. I hope he continues to be happy with his decision and find something that fufills his life just as football once did

yeah I heard that he wanted to quit and he was going to retire and smoke weed (literally).

Maybe like in Pulp Fiction, there was some "divine intervention" that made him want to quit.

I totally agree. I'd retire before the game destroyed my life too. And they are tripping because he smoked weed? please...

Better to be a pothead than an alcoholic.
A freaken men. I heard in the NBA the percentage of POT SMOKERS is like 80 percent. I belive it to. I am from Toledo Ohio. I know people that are cousins and close friends of a star basketball player and he smokes and has always given the inside on the Basketball association. I also know a girl that dated a basball player for the detroit tigers and he also smoked. If somebody wants to smoke some pot and it doesn't effect there main responsibilites then cool. Ricky as well as the two professional athlets my friends are cool with have had good careers in there sport. Not only that but iam sure many of us know well established people who also smoke pot, I sure do. People can go to the doctor and get perscribed drugs such and zanax for example and withen the ending of the first bottle have a major addiction. And if anyone knows anybody that is strung out on pills like i do, knows that pill addiction is one of the worst, alcohol is very high on the addiction charts and tobacco as well. But when is the last time anyone heard of weed destroying someones life. Sure if u get caught selling pounds ur gonna get jail time and maybe screw ur life up, but it aint gonna happen to a normal everyday pot smoker.
