After several big hits this weekend left him with tingling in his extremities, [tag]Priest Holmes[/tag] has been forced to retire from the Kansas City Chiefs and the NFL. Holmes had played in four games this season after missing two years with a neck injury, but the recurrence of symptoms Sunday made him rethink his comeback.

Video from today’s press conference is below:

Sad to see him have to hang them up after working so hard to come back, but I’m glad Priest is walking away before it’s too late. Neck and brain injuries are nothing to mess around with and his quality of life is much more important than football.

Priest came back again and again and was always the underdog, but he had a heck of an NFL career and for a while was one of the top running backs in the league. He represented the University of Texas well and I enjoyed watching him play for the Horns and for the Chiefs. Thanks for the memories Priest.
