Unreal. http://www.nfl.com/news/story/0ap10...swope-cards-rookie-retires-due-to-concussions Swope released a statement Thursday night through his representation, Rep1 Sports: "As a result of a concussion I suffered during OTAs, I was advised by doctors that there were serious risks in returning to play football at this point. It has been a lifelong dream to play in the NFL but my long-term health interests outweigh my current goals for football. Because of that, I am electing to retire from the game for now and then reassess my future after this season. In the meantime, I plan to return to Texas A&M to pursue my degree." This is sad. Maybe he's taking a "medical redshirt" and can resume his career next year?
