Defensive back Nasir Adderley of the Los Angeles Chargers has recently announced his retirement at the young age of 25. In his statement, Adderley explained that after some self-reflection, he has decided to prioritize his health and well-being over his football career.
Throughout his four seasons with the Chargers, the former second-round pick accumulated 232 total tackles, three interceptions, and two forced fumbles. Adderley expressed gratitude for the opportunity to play in the NFL and for the Chargers organization, but ultimately decided that he did not want to continue pursuing football at the expense of his own personal peace.
“I don’t want to extend the pursuit of improving as a football player at the expense of my own personal peace,” Adderley stated in his retirement announcement. “My purpose involves spending more time with my loved ones, business ownership, and chasing my passion of true liberation.”
Adderley went on to express his appreciation for the relationships he has built during his time in the NFL, and thanked his supporters for their love and encouragement. While he is retiring from football, he is looking forward to spending more time with his loved ones, pursuing his passions, and exploring new opportunities in business ownership.
