Veteran NFL Linebacker Announces His Retirement At 29


A veteran NFL linebacker has opted to retire from the league at the age of 29.

Todd Davis, a 6-foot-1 linebacker from Sacramento State University, had signed with the New York Giants prior to the 2021 season. However, the veteran NFL linebacker will not be playing for the NFC East franchise this fall.

The eighth-year NFL linebacker has decided to retire from the league.

New York announced the news on Tuesday morning.

“Roster Updates: LB Blake Martinez and DB Joshua Kalu have been activated. WR Derrick Dillon has been placed on the Reserve/Injured list and LB Todd Davis has been placed on the Reserve/Retired list,” the Giants announced.

Davis wasn’t on the Giants for very long. He had signed with the NFC East franchise just prior to this month.

“Todd Davis signed Saturday and retired today, and he didn’t even have to run a lap yesterday,” Giants reporter Art Stapleton tweeted.

The Giants are currently in training camp, preparing for the 2021 season.

New York opens the regular season on Sunday, Sept. 12 against the Denver Broncos.
