    Scheff to retire


    Concussions push former Lion Tony Scheffler to retire from NFL
    Jun 11 2014, 11:16 AMThe Associated Press
    Tony Scheffler is retiring from the NFL.

    Scheffler told The Associated Press on Wednesday he made the choice because he had three concussions over the past four years.

    He had 258 receptions for 3,207 yards and 22 touchdowns in his eight-year career. The Detroit Lions released Scheffler in October. He later had workouts with Chicago and Kansas City and says there was ''moderate'' interest in him as a free agent this offseason.

    Denver drafted him in the second round in 2006 out of Western Michigan and traded him four years later to Detroit.

    Scheffler says his plans include becoming a real estate agent and assistant football coach at the high school in his hometown of Chelsea, Michigan.

    I thought he retired 2 years ago.

    He said that if he was drafted after the 3rd round he wouldn't sign the contract. He wants to choose his team rather than be a 4-7th rd pick.

    Unfortunate for him but at least it sounds like he has a plan after football unlike some of his peers. The first year here I remember him being pretty good just too bad it ended so poorly.
