Todd Gurley was one of the best running backs in the NFL before injuries derailed his career.

The former University of Georgia standout has not played in the league since suiting up for the Atlanta Falcons in 2020, and fans should not expect to see him on the field again.

During an interview with NFL Network’s Andrew Siciliano, Gurley said that he is “most definitely” done playing football despite not officially announcing his retirement. There had been some speculation about Gurley officially calling it a career after sending out tweets to NFL legends like Barry Sanders.

But according to Gurley, he was simply giving the current and former stars their flowers.

“I just wanted to let those guys know that I appreciate them for everything that they’ve done for me from like an inspirational level,” Gurley said, “just from watching those guys since I was 4, 5 years old.

“We don’t big each other up, we don’t congratulate each other. We see each other post-game and that’s pretty much it. Just wanted to let everybody know that I really appreciate their game, appreciate everything that they’ve done for me.”

Gurley was the No. 10 overall pick in the 2015 NFL Draft and was an excellent player for the Rams. The 28-year-old was the 2015 Offensive Rookie of the Year, 2017 Offensive Player of the Year, and led the NFL in rushing touchdowns in 2017 and 2018. Now, the former three-time All-Pro is focusing on his life and opportunities off of the field.
