Although life in the NFL moves fast, careers are often all too short. This is a sport where the average retirement age is 30 years old and the retirees generally have the luxury of living a worry-free life after football.
So what happens in life after football for NFL retirees?
More often than not, they scatter to the winds to live a quiet life pursuing whatever passion they hold dear. Once retired, most NFL players resurface in the public eye only on the rarest of occasions.
It is not unheard of for former football players to be reluctant to give up the limelight, though. Leaving the national stage of the NFL for a life of relative anonymity isn’t for everyone.
Those special players will gravitate back into the world of broadcast media after leaving the NFL. So sit back and grab some popcorn while we take a look into a possible future to see which then-retired NFL players might test the waters of launching acting careers network television, Hollywood, or even perhaps Broadway.
