Why Eagles CB Walter Thurmond Is Retiring at 28 Years Old

It was announced on Monday that former Philadelphia Eagles cornerback Walter Thurmond is retiring from the NFL after six seasons. 

Thurmond played safety and cornerback over the past few seasons, including winning a Super Bowl with the Seattle Seahawks a couple years ago. 

He played last season on the Eagles on a one-year deal worth over $3 million. That year, he started all 16 games for the first time in his career, finishing with 62 tackles, three interceptions and two sacks.

Thurmond was getting offers of over $4 million a year this offseason, so what made him decide to call it quits at only 28 years old?

Thurmond has told people close to him that he doesn't want to play football any longer, he wants to pursue other opportunities, and his time in the league is up, according to the source.

Best of luck to him.
