Ex-Rams RB Todd Gurley says his NFL career is ‘most definitely’ over

It’s reliable to say that Todd Gurley is one of the most talented running backs of his era. In recent weeks, the two-time All-SEC running back has made his final decision public. Fans are ready to accept his announcement sorrowfully.

The former Rams and Falcons RB stated in an interview with NFL Network’s Andrew Siciliano that he plans to retire from professional football. There is no way he will ever step foot in an NFL arena again. 

“I don’t think there’s any question about that one,” Todd stated.

In the last week, Gurley has been the subject of suspicion after tweeting his gratitude to several current and former NFL players for their contributions to the game. Additionally, the “alpha man” ensured that there was no sinister motive at all.

The 28-year-old RB elucidated, “I just wanted to show gratitude man, because there’s a lot of guys that’s on this earth and especially as alpha males, we don’t show the love like we’re supposed to. I just wanted to let those guys know that I appreciate them for everything that they’ve done for me, just at an inspirational level.” 

Todd Gurley was a two-time All-SEC selection as a member of the Georgia Bulldogs and a first-round pick of the St. Louis Rams in the 2015 NFL Draft. With nearly 1,000 yards and 10 touchdowns in his rookie season, he claimed the league’s Offensive Rookie of the Year tag.

Todd reached his full potential while playing under Sean McVay, dominating the league in rushing in 2017 and 2018, and was named to the All-Pro team in each of those years. Due to injuries, he was only able to run 195 times for 678 yards and 9 touchdowns over the next few years. Furthermore, he was traded to the Atlanta Falcons in 2020.
