Perhaps not everyone should have access to a Twitter account. O.J. Simpson definitely falls into that category, and he proved it Saturday.
That’s when the Hall of Fame running back — who was born and raised in San Francisco, and finished his career with the 49ers — shared his thoughts on former Stanford star Andrew Luck’s stunning decision to retire from the NFL.
Simpson shared the video from his fantasy football draft party, where he’d apparently taken Luck just before Adam Schefter’s initial report that the now-former Colts quarterback was hanging up his cleats.
“Andrew Luck, what did I do to you?” Simpson said. “You could have retired an hour and a half ago, before I picked you in my fantasy picks.”
It’s nice to see Simpson finally is looking for someone to take accountability for their actions. What a concept.
Luck’s decision makes sense, though. He suffered a litany of injuries during his NFL career, and repeatedly was thrown behind one of the league’s worst offensive lines.
Physical toll on Andrew Luck through 6 NFL seasons:— Zak Keefer (@zkeefer) August 25, 2019
» Torn cartilage in 2 ribs
» partially torn abdomen
» a lacerated kidney that left him peeing blood
» at least 1 concussion
» a torn labrum in his throwing shoulder
» and this mysterious calf/ankle issue that led to this
The 29-year-old also got married over the offseason, and he has a degree from Stanford, so he and his family will do just fine.
