Lots of NFL players enter the league and have careers that are much shorter than they had thought. Whether it’s an injury that brings playing days to an end or simply a failure to catch on with a team, lots of players come in and out of the league. The average career only lasts 3 ½ years (and you have to play 4 years to qualify for a pension, interestingly enough). The average NFL player is about 26 ½ years old, so it’s a league that brings players in and sends most of them on their way fairly quickly. Some players, though, had their careers cut short – and the league suffered as a result.
