Yesterday, Nate Chandler the Chicago Bears offensive lineman hung up his cleats according to the NFL Transactions report. Chandler appeared in 37 games with 19 starts for Carolina from 2012 to 2014. He sat out last season because of a right knee injury and joined the Bears in June.
He played in college at UCLA and began his NFL career as a defensive tackle before switching to the offensive line in 2013. All of his starts have been on the offensive line.
It is interesting to see another young player hanging up his cleats. This is becoming a new trend in the NFL. Many are concerned about their future.
