Running back Todd Gurley announced his retirement on Friday after six seasons in the NFL.
He made this announcement at the microphone of the NFL Network.
Gurley, 28, was invited to the Pro Bowl three times in his first four seasons before his performance was compromised by persistent left knee problems.
Gurley played for the Rams, the team that drafted him in the first round in 2015, for the first five seasons of his career. He played one season with the Atlanta Falcons in 2020 and did not play in 2021.
He was named Offensive Rookie of the Year in 2015 and Offensive Player of the Year in 2017, a season in which he led the NFL with 2,093 total yards. He also led the NFL in touchdowns in 2017 and 2018 with 19 and 21 majors.
