Complications from his 2019 neck injury have forced Patriots FB James Develin to retire after eight years in the NFL.
Develin's professional football career actually began in 2010, but he had to put in stints in the UFL and Arena League before the big leagues came calling. A converted defensive lineman, Develin turned in six seasons of lead blocking duty before his neck derailed 2019. Three months shy of his 32nd birthday, the three-time Super Bowl winner has made the wise decision to put his long-term health first. It's unfortunate timing for both him and the Patriots with a more run-heavy offense likely at least in the initial wake of Tom Brady's absence. Apr 27 1:22 pm (EST)
