San Francisco 49ers Linebacker Patrick Willis To Retire from NFL

San Francisco 49ers Linebacker Patrick Willis To Retire from NFL

Inside linebacker, Patrick Willis, plans to announce his retirement from the NFL, according to The Bleacher Report.

Willis, who has been with the San Francisco 49ers for eight years, has been called the best inside linebacker in the league but now reports are swirling that the 49ers won’t be able to make more history with the star.

Yahoo Sports writer Rand Getlin states that the 49ers are “bracing themselves” for Willis’ sudden decision to leave football entirely as he plans“to use his time to do some community work, particularly with children,” tweeted Mike Garafolo of Fox Sports’.

The 30-year-old has been in the league for only eight years and after being limited to only playing in six games last season due to a toe injury, he finished the season with a career-low in 34 tackles and “failed to register a sack for the first time”. He also stated back in November that he had “years” of football left in him.

“I don’t look to play this game for just another year. I feel like I have five or six more great years of football left in my body. Unfortunately, this toe was telling me otherwise.”

If Willis’ truly intends to retire from football he will leave with 950 career tackles and 20.5 sacks and he appeared in the Pro Bowl seven times and became a first-team All-Pro on five occasions.
