He is just 26-years-old. From AP-
Buffalo Bills starting right tackle Brad Butler announced his retirement on Thursday.
The news comes as a surprise to the Bills after the 26-year-old Butler completed his fourth NFL season.
Butler majored in government studies at Virginia, and spent the 2008 offseason interning at Kemp Partners in Washington DC with former and late Bills quarterback and congressman Jack Kemp.
“My passion for education, country and community is something that I am ready to devote my full attention to,” he said in a statement released by the team. “I believe the best way to pursue these spheres of interest is to step away from the game of football at this point in my life.”
Butler was probably more interested in non-football matters. He spent most of the 2009 season injured. I make a bet that influenced his career decision.
