Sounds pretty par for the course, most running backs last 10 years. He has had a lot of mileage. I would love it if he retired at 30, I don't want to see him gimping around with a walker. Football is a brutal, violent sport and concussions aside, it takes a toll on the body.

 

Look at Barry Sanders, he left the game early, is a Hall of Famer and is still looking great. You need to know when to stop especially when you are a running back, you are getting hit on every play practically.

Agreed.  He has a ring and life changing money.  If he plays a few more years and walks away I have no gripe.  If flacco retired at 30 I would flip a table.

Sounds about right.  He's been heavily used for a long time.

Most runningbacks retire around 30.

He will be 27 on Jan 22 so this means we'll get at least three more years out of him. Now those three years can be productive if Ozzie can get the right offensive line in place.

I would not blame him. He could retire a Raven.

I was overjoyed until I read the "at 30" part. Now I'm just content.

He has indicated in the interview that he has been playing hurt. I will take him at his word.

I agree.  A hurt Ray Rice clearly isn't helping us.  There are obvious OL issues, but there's still a Ray Rice issue.  I hope he takes the time this offseason to get healthy and we get shades of the Ray that we had 2008-2012.
