Williams is a fool

Paul KasprzakContributor IOctober 29, 2016

According to Pat Yasinskas of ESPN, via ProFootballTalk.com, Carolina Panthers running back DeAngelo Williams thinks that 30 is like the new 50 in the National Football League.

The fact of the matter is that is a load of crap and Williams is a fool for believing it.

In the National Football League players start to deteriorate upon reaching 30 years old.

The reason being that testosterone levels in the average male peak in the early 20’s, and then start to drop off.

Testosterone is responsible for muscle building and with all the weight training, practice and games that an average player goes through a 30 year old’s body just cannot keep up with all of it, which is why you see a lot of players that are 30 years or older suffer muscle based injuries.

In the end, it won’t matter how many less carries that Williams takes once he hits 30 years old his days will be numbered.
