Husain Abdullah se retire de la NFL.

Le Chief de 30 ans S Husain Abdullah a annoncé sur son Instagram qu’il tirait sa révérence après 7 saisons NFL.

« Il y a de nombreux facteurs qui m’ont fait prendre ma décision, avec celle de ma santé avant tout. Rester assis pendant 5 semaines l’année dernière après avoir souffert de la 5e commotion de ma carrière m’a fait méditer sur beaucoup de choses. »

« Mon but d’aller de l’avant est pour ma famille, ma communauté, mon pays et avec espoir le monde. Avoir un esprit sain est vital pour accomplir ces objectifs. »

A seulement 30 ans, Abdullah reste encore un Safety de qualité mais qui préfère se retirer à temps à cause de ses trop nombreuses commotions cérébrales.

Undrafted free agent de Washington State, Husain Abdullah finit sa carrière après avoir joué pour les Vikings et Chiefs et compilé 261 tackles, 2,5 sacks et 6 interceptions en 7 ans.

After 7 years in the NFL, I am retiring. I would like to thank the Minnesota Vikings for giving me an opportunity to make the team after going undrafted in 2008. I experienced a great deal of growth both as a football player and as a person during my 4 years in Minnesota. Thank you. The Kansas City Chiefs will forever have a special place in my heart. After sitting out of football to fulfill my Hajj Pilgrimage in 2012, The Chiefs were the first to call. The three years I spent playing for KC may have been the most enjoyable football experience in my entire life. Thank you. There are numerous deciding factors in my decision, with personal health being foremost. Sitting for five weeks last year after suffering the fifth concussion of my career, I had a lot to contemplate. My goals moving forward are to be of benefit to my family, my community, my country and hopefully the world. Having a sound mind will be vital in accomplishing these goals. Thank you to everyone I've crossed paths with during my time as a player. You've had an impact on my life for the better. Thanks for the love and support. It's greatly appreciated. #chiefskingdom #Peace✌🏿️
