It's not official yet but if you read the article, it sounds like more than just unsubstantiated rumors.

It seems like more and mmore players retiring young.

Cold is temporary. Purple Pride is forever.

The Devil whispered in the Viking's ear, "There's a storm coming." The Viking replied, "I am the storm." ‪#‎SKOL2017 #BringitHome‬

Its the smart thing to do. Use the money for investments and live healthily until you are 75 rather than bust your #### till you are nearly 40 and be a blubbering mass by 60

Playing in the NFL just wreaks havoc on you. I hope the little I played (but 2 concussions in HS) dont come back to haunt me.

When asked to comment, Lynch released the following statement: "I'm just here so I won't get fined."

One of my favorite non-Vikings, maybe my favorite non-Viking. Sad to see him go but I think it's his time.
