Chris Long is calling it a career. The Rams defensive end has lost his passion for the game, and has decided to do something else instead of play football. He made the announcement on Twitter, where he's know for his "%controversy."
The offending tweets:
Fans thank you for all your love and support. Soul searched for a month now and I need break from the game. Possibly joining the peace corps— Chris Long (@JOEL9ONE) April 1, 2013
hardest decision I've ever made but I hope you Guys can respect my desire for happiness. Right now the game of football isn't it. Thank you— Chris Long (@JOEL9ONE) April 1, 2013
I don't expect anyone to care. I have some remarkable teammates and I have loved every minute playing ball with them.— Chris Long (@JOEL9ONE) April 1, 2013
Man, it's gonna be tough without Chris Long. And what a strange day to hang it up, the first of April.
Oh well, next man up.
