Offensive guard John Moffitt was traded twice this offseason and has only played two games for the Broncos but has decided that he has lost his love for football and is therefore retiring from the game.
“I just really thought about it and decided I’m not happy. I’m not happy at all,” Moffitt told the Associated Press. “And I think it’s really madness to risk your body, risk your well-being and risk your happiness for money.”
With his decision, Moffitt leaves about $1 million in salary he was due this season and next on the table. Plus, his team seems destined to make a playoff run that could have landed Moffitt in a possible Super Bowl.
Moffitt doesn’t care about leaving either opportunity on the table either and added that he does need money to be happy, that he has enough to live on and he is content with that.
