David Wilson (neck) announced on Wednesday that he is retiring from football.
This is a truly sad story for a kid with a lot of promise coming out of Virginia Tech. The neck burner he suffered caused "numbness" in his hands and lower extremities and Wilson's spinal surgeon advised him against playing football. You have to give the young player credit for taking this in stride saying "Now I have a chance to dream another dream and live that, too ... Don't feel sorry for me or pity me." At just 23 years old, it appears Wilson is content with retirement.ANALYST: Drew Phelps
