Cardinals TE John Carlson is retiring after seven years in the NFL.
One week shy of his 31st birthday, Carlson had one year left on his contract. "After much thought and consideration, my wife Danielle and I know that this is best decision for us," Carlson said in a statement. He did not elaborate on his reasoning, but Carlson has a long and scary history of concussions. It was undoubtedly a factor in hanging up his cleats. Carlson retires with 210 catches for 2,256 yards and 15 touchdowns. He posted a 33/350/1 receiving line last season. The Cardinals have a crater at tight end. May 5 - 1:44 PM
