The Arizona Cardinals restricted defender to free agent Kylie Fitts sent out a social media post via Instagram announcing he will be retiring from football.

This decision is due to the many concussions the 27-year-old has faced throughout his career. Fitts played just six games in 2021 because of a concussion that left him injured in October 2021.

Fitts issued a lengthy, written statement about his decision to quit the game.

“After 21 years of playing football, for me, football has come to an end,” says Fitts. “Due to so many concussions and the severity of the recent one, I cannot continue playing. I am so grateful for this game and everything it has taught and brought to my life. Thank you to all of my coaches and teammates throughout my career.”

“I am also very grateful to my family and wife who have supported me through all the ups and downs and especially to my father. Spent countless hours, early mornings and late nights helping me achieve my goal of always wanting to play in the NFL. I believe we are made for more than just playing games. I know God has great plans for me and my family and I’m so excited for what he has in store for me next! ”

The 27-year-old has played in Utah, where he has faced injury during his junior and senior seasons.
