Todd Gurley, a former Los Angeles Rams great running back, made some remarks on NFL Network on Friday that suggested his playing days would soon be gone. Gurley asserted that he “doesn’t think there’s any question” that his football career is over. The former All-Pro Ram tweeted a head-scratching tweet after that.
Todd Gurley wrote, “Fake News,” in a tweet. Gurley appears to be making reference to the extensive press coverage of his remarks hinting that he would probably be hanging up his cleats. However, what’s intriguing is that he said those things.
The former Rams running back might not agree with some who interpreted his comments as a declaration of his retirement. Or perhaps he’s second-guessing the decision to call it quits on his NFL career, which was cut short by knee injuries?
In either case, it will undoubtedly cause Gurley’s supporters to consider his future. The Baltimore, Maryland native last made an appearance in the NFL in 2020 while playing for the Atlanta Falcons, making 15 appearances.
The then-St. Louis Rams selected Todd Gurley in the first round of the 2015 NFL Draft. In his debut season in the league, he ran for more than 1000 yards, but it wasn’t until the 2017 and 2018 seasons that he attained All-Pro status.
Gurley had over 1800 scrimmage yards and at least 19 touchdowns during those two seasons, making him probably the finest running back in the NFL.
Fans would adore one last opportunity to witness Gurley in that form. But it appears that the talented halfback has retired from football. But regrettably, the operative word here is appears to.
