Free agent running back Rashard Mendenhall, who played for the Pittsburgh Steelers and Arizona Cardinals, is retiring from the National Football League. Mendenhall, 26, played in the NFL for six seasons. He was drafted by the Steelers as the 23rd overall pick of the 2008 NFL Draft.

ESPN's Adam Schefter broke the news about Mendenhall's surprising retirement:


This is the snippet from Mendenhall's Huffington Post article, where he hints at retirement:

"That day I sat on my couch two years ago was the very next day after I tore my ACL in week 17. The journey I envisioned is the two years of rebuilding that would follow. And as I write this, today is the day that the journey is over and I am fully at peace. Eagerly looking to a new way, which lies ahead," he writes.

Mendenhall's best season came in 2010 when he ran for 1,273 yards on 3.9 yards per carry and 13 rushing touchdowns. He had 687 rushing yards on 3.2 yards per carry and eight touchdowns in his last season, which was with the Cardinals in 2013.
