PostSubject: Rashard Mendenhall reportedly retiring   Sun Mar 09, 2014 12:21 am

Arizona Cardinals running back Rashard Mendenhall hinted last month that he was wrestling with a decision to walk away from the NFL.

Now it seems that his mind is made up.

Teams interested in potentially signing the impending free agent have been told that Mendenhall is indeed retiring, ESPN's Adam Schefter reported Saturday.

After averaging a paltry 3.2 yards per carry compared to backfield mate Andre Ellington's 5.5, Mendenhall was facing an uphill battle to land a starting job and guaranteed money on the open market.

With Mendenhall out of the picture, coach Bruce Arians plans to make Ellington a focal point of the Cardinals offense.

The No. 23 overall pick in a stacked running-back class from the 2008 NFL Draft, Mendenhall finishes his career with 4,236 rushing yards, 39 total touchdowns and a per-carry average of 3.9 yards.



If you're going to be a smart ass, you'd better be smart. Otherwise, you're just an ass.
