“After much discussion with my family and business team during this offseason, I’ve decided to retire from the National Football League,” Jones-Drew wrote. “The past 9 years were absolutely amazing. I’ll be forever grateful to the countless people who have assisted me throughout my NFL Journey. To my fans, and NFL fans worldwide, you are the absolute greatest. But for you, our league would not exist. Football has been a central part of my life for the past 24 year. But now I’m excited about and looking forward to the next chapter of my life.”
