Well , for me and you, yeah. There's increasing debt, a tough job market, and a whole other list of problems just to name a few... Granted some of that comes along with getting old. You know what else comes along with getting old if you are a pro athlete? Irrelevance. You see it all the time in sports. Guys get older, they get slower , and then they are replaced by younger, faster, and often much cheaper players. Because of the physical toll football takes on a person's body, there's nowhere you will see it more than in the NFL.As we get ready for the off-season conditioning programs and OTAs to start in earnest, let's take a look at who is staring into their own professional sunsets. It may be hard for some of us to admit that these guys are nearing the end of their playing days , because if they're old, then it means we are old too and the best we can hope for is one last great go-round. Some players seem to constantly beat father time (like Tom Brady), while others can only look back oHere are 20 guys we will spend the summer hoping get one last shot at Super Bowl glory before the league casts them aside. Not all National Football League busts are busts forever. Case Keenum and Nick Foles are two recent examples of this. While Foles had one Pro Bowl season during his early days with the Philadelphia Eagles, nobody expected him to be anything other than a backup at the start of the 2017 campaign. Keenum, meanwhile , was largely a forgotten figure at this time a year ago. Both men proved to be pivotal figures for their clubs last season, and Foles went on to become one of the more surprising Super Bowl Most Valuable Players in the history of the sport. They serve as reminders that all shouldn’t judge NFL players prematurely. Fans and observers alike cannot help themselves, though, and that’s why one could forecast at least ten different players who probably will not be able to overcome the bust status that is attached to their resumes as of the first week of the 2018 regular season. With that said, there are a handful of athletes who have the physical attributes and potential to silence critics and show that they aren’t busts and that they merely needed a little time to develop as pros. Those who do not manage to prove to their current employers they aren’t busts may find themselves looking for work come next spring when free agency opens.
