Matt Forte announces retirement after 10 NFL seasons
Matt Forte is calling it a career.
On Wednesday, the New York Jets running back announced his retirement after 10 NFL seasons on Twitter.
"For the past 10 years, I've been blessed to play professionally a game that I've loved since I was 6 years old," Forte wrote. "But, after much prayer and reflection, I've decided to retire from the NFL. Like so many others before me, this game has enhanced my life in numerous ways. My career in the league has been nothing short of a miracle granted by God and put on display for His glory. I will cherish the many memories made on the field and the life-long friends I've made over the years in the locker room."
