Despite the fact that running back Jahvid Best has officially retired from the NFL, he may not rule out a comeback down the road, according to the National Football Post.
Other than to thank the Detroit Lions, and to note that he will “always be” a Lion, tailback Jahvid Best, released by Detroit this week after a concussion-ravaged three-year career, has remained quiet about his plans. Ditto his camp. There is a solid chance Best, who played in only 22 games in his career, will simply retire. But the suspicion in some quarters is that Best, who is only 24 years old, will explore plenty of options and continue to meet with concussion specialists, in an attempt to yet resurrect his career. Despite the likelihood he will never play again, it might still take awhile for that reality to sink in. A first-round pick in 2010 (30th overall), Best hasn’t played in a game since October 2011, and the former University of California standout still possesses residual effects from the concussions he’s suffered. Those concussions actually began in college. But he apparently isn’t quite convinced yet to throw in the towel.
It would be great if Best could play again, but I don’t see it happening. It’s not like it took a lot for him to get multiple concussionz within the first two years of his career, it only takes another hit and then he’ll have to retire again.
