San Francisco 49ers offensive tackle Anthony Davis has retired from the NFL, according to a statement released from Davis' agent Drew Rosenhaus.

Here is his statement:

After a few years of thought, I've decided it will be best for me to take a year or so away from the NFL. This will be a time for me to allow my Brain and Body a chance to heal. I know many won't understand my decision, that's ok.

I hope you too have the courage to live your life how you planned it when day dreaming to yourself growing up. Your Life is Your dream and you have the power to control that dream. Im simply doing what's best for my body as well as my mental health at this time in my life.

Sincerely,
Anthony Davis
