Titans' Ball believes career is over

National Football Post

Tennessee Titans defensive end Dave Ball missed all of the 2012 season due to a concussion sustained in training camp.

Now, Ball, who is about to become a free agent in March, says he believes his NFL career is probably over at age 32 because no team will want to take a chance on him, given his concussion history. Ball's 2011 season ended with a concussion as well.

“I’m not gonna retire, but I think I’ll be forced to retire based on lack of options,” Ball told TitanInsider. “I think teams are gonna be scared to sign me, so that’s what I’ve been preparing for mentally. I’d love to sign with somebody else, but I just know it’s not gonna happen.”

Sad, but likely true that Ball's concussion history will probably prevent any team from taking a flier on him for 2013.
