From Ben Roethlisberger to Jimmy Graham: NFL Stars Who Should Retire at the End of the Season

Sometimes it happens that NFL players have their skills faded even before they could get done with their passion. Let's talk about such players who have lost their skills but still have the urge to be in the game. 

Jimmy Graham, TE, Chicago Bears

Jimmy Graham served as a dominant red-zone threat. He has had a league-leading 16 touchdown passes during the 2013 campaign. But in 2019, his performances started dropping with Green Bay Packers. 

T.Y. Hilton, WR, Indianapolis Colts

Just when T.Y Hilton started to build a connection with quarterback Carson Wentz during the offseason, he suffered a neck injury. This put him into a process of surgery. At this time Hillton actually considered retirement for the healing process.

Richie Incognito, OG, Las Vegas Raiders

He hasn't played a snap since September 2020. Also, in the span of the last 14 months, he spent most of his time rehabbing and recovering while on injury reserve.

Josh Norman, CB, San Francisco 49ers

Norman gave up eight touchdowns in 2018 and also lost his starting job with the Washington Football Team in 2019. He’s a major liability in coverage, and isn’t what the 49ers need this season.

Jason Peters, OT, Chicago Bears

The recent pass-protection issues show how and why he is no longer a solid starter. He is also considered to be in a sharp decline. Peters is not equipped to handle athletic edge-rushers and also has less experience at guard to transition.

Ben Roethlisberger, QB, Pittsburgh Steelers

He showed significant decline during the last season, which carried into the 2021 campaign. Ben went into a reconstructive surgery on his elbow. He still threw for 3,803 yards, 33 touchdowns and 10 interceptions in the 2020 season but these numbers were dunked down from what he actually used to perform.
