49ers veteran offensive tackle Anthony Davis has delivered a late Friday afternoon shocker, Aaron Wilson of the National Football Post reports.
Davis announced he’s stepping away from the NFL indefinitely. He didn’t say he’s retiring, but Davis might as well have.
Here’s his full statement:
“After a few years of thought, I’ve decided it will be best for me to take a year or so away from the NFL. This will be a time for me to allow my Brain and Body a chance to heal. I know many won’t understand my decision, that’s ok.
“I hope you too have the courage to live your life how you planned it when day dreaming to yourself growing up. Your Life is Your dream and you have the power to control that dream. I’m simply doing what’s best for my body as well as my mental health at this time in my life.
