Bucs NFC South Rival Carolina, watches Pro Bowl LB Luke Kuechly randomly retire at the age of 28 for safety reasons... can ya blame him though?

VIA ESPN: CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Carolina Panthers linebacker Luke Kuechly, fighting back tears in a video posted on social media, announced on Tuesday night his plans to retire from the NFL at age 28.

"There's only one way to play this game since I was a little kid -- play fast, play physical and play strong,'' Kuechly said. "And at this point I don't know if I am able to do that anymore. That's the part that is the most difficult.''
