The hot new trend on the internet is NFL players announcing their retirements in creative ways on Twitter.
First, it was Marshawn Lynch.
Now it’s Jared Allen, who is LITERALLY riding a horse into the distance on Twitter.
Allen thanked his fans for a wonderful 12 year career, then expressed disappointment that he wasn’t riding off into the sunset for the simple reason that there was no sunset at time of filming.
Retirement is always a sad moment for fans and players alike, but these creative announcements are at least a nice parting gift for us.
