NFL players have come up with so many different ways of announcing their retirements. Some hold press conferences. Others post hype videos.
Former Patriot fullback Danny Vitale chose to reveal his in a post on his LinkedIn page, and, in the process, made a pitch for his post-playing career.
"Hi everyone," the post began. "As many of you may know, I have been playing professional football for the last 5 years. I have truly enjoyed every moment of playing in the NFL, especially for the Cleveland Browns, Green Bay Packers, and New England Patriots. However, I feel like my body is just ready to move on. I’m looking for a new role and would appreciate your support.
"For those of you who do not know me well, I graduated from Northwestern University with a degree in economics. I also earned a minor in business institutions and integrated marketing communications.
