Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Monday, August 04, 2014

The promising career of New York Giants running back David Wilson appears to be over before his third NFL season. The Giants announced Monday that two doctors have advised Wilson, 23, to stop playing football due to the condition of his neck and spine. "I don't want anybody to feel sorry for me or pity me," Wilson said via a team press release. "I lived my dream. A lot of people only get to dream their dream. I lived that dream. Now I have a chance to dream another dream and live that, too." Wilson played 21 games for the Giants after being drafted in the first round, 32nd overall, in the 2012 NFL Draft. He had 504 yards rushing, 1,755 yards returning kicks and scored seven touchdowns (five rushing, one receiving and one returning a kick).

He was a history major in college, so will do fine in the current job market...

As a Giants fan, I'd rather see him retire than paralyzed so I'm glad he made the right decision even if it means losing a guy with his potential.

He's made over $4 million already and is due another $1.6 million so if he wasn't foolish with the money he should be just fine.

Smart move, presuming he values his longevity.

Hopefully he doesn't have the same financial adviser as Vince Young.
