Ian Gold is not Brett Favre

Longtime Denver Broncos linebacker Ian Gold is retiring from the NFL, but before he leaves, he’s got this to say:

“When people here I’m retiring, they’re going to be like, ‘Ian who?.  But I’m all right with that,” Gold said.

“I’ve had some people say to me, ‘You’re retiring?’, and they think it’s crazy,” Gold said.  “But it’s not.  It’s time to move on.  I’m not pulling a Brett Favre.  I’m getting out of the game with my health and my youth.”

C’mon Brett, how enticing does “health” and “youth” sound to you?  I’d take it…
