Jake Locker decides to retire
Mike Garofalo reports on Twitter that NFL free agent Jake Locker has decided to retire. Locker was drafted eighth overall in 2011 by the Tennessee Titans.
Many will be shocked to hear the news of Locker's retirement at the age of 26. He was set to be one of the top free agent options at the QB position this off-season. Locker finishes his career playing in just 30 games, passing for 4,967 yards with 27 touchdowns and 22 interceptions. In his statement, Locker sites the lack of desire to play football as the reason for his unexpected retirement. His career was derailed with injuries, which could be another explanation for this outcome.
