Calvin Johnson, Marshawn Lynch, Jerod Mayo and Husain Abdullah all retired this offseason despite being 30 or younger.
"I think historically, Jim Brown and Barry Sanders are viewed as early retirements," Borland said. "I think whenever a guy decides to walk away is when he and his family decides he's not Cheap NFL Jerseys going to play a game anymore. And even if you play for 20 years and are a Hall-of-Famer, you still have a life to live after football. So I think that's always been a clich;, but that's starting to get real, tangible results."
Really? You think we can't figure out a workaround to this? Here, here are three:
After every touchdown, the scoring team has the opportunity to go for it from 20 yards for the chance to retain possession. This would probably work around as often as onside kicks, and we'd get to see a regular football play decided Wholesale Jerseys Free Shipping by each team's offense Nike NFL Jerseys Cheap and defense rather than the whims of a funny-shaped ball. If you miss, the opponent gets the ball from the spot.
We're eliminating kickers' jobs a bit here, so let's give them a break. Same idea, but with a 60-yard field goal with the ball spotted at midfield. No defense, just a kicker and a holder. I'm guessing that with kickoffs out of the game, teams will prioritize hyper-accurate kickers over strong-legged kickers, so there will be fewer kickers capable of hitting these. If you hit it, you Jerseys China keep the ball from midfield, if you miss, the opponent gets the ball at midfield. We can tweak it if kickers are making 60-yarders too frequently, but kickers generally don't make 60-yarders frequently.
And last but not least ...
Teams have the option to attempt onside kicks Baseball Jerseys Custom if they want to. Onside kicks don't have the same inherent dangers as regular kickoffs, so we could eliminate the dangerous type of kickoffs where teams sprint into each other at full speed while still allowing teams to attempt the play where everybody chases a bouncing ball. There would be a rule in place against kicking it deep, to prevent teams from abusing the rule to manipulate the loophole for field position.
