James Develin to retire after neck injury complications

James Develin announced his retirement today in an emotional Instagram post, citing complications from last year's season-ending neck injury.

Fantasy Impact

Develin was a fan-favorite who worked his way from an undrafted Ivy League defensive lineman to Pro Bowl fullback and three-time Super Bowl Champion with the Patriots. The Patriots will look to fill Develin's big shoes along with a few other roster needs throughout the remainder of the offseason.
