Cardinals LB Kylie Fitts retires, citing recurring concussions

Cardinals linebacker Kylie Fitts, a 2018 sixth-round pick who spent his last three seasons with the team, announced his retirement on Friday, citing his recent string of concussions.

“After 21 years of playing, football has come to an end for me,” Fitts wrote on Instagram. “Due to too many concussions and the severity of my recent one, it is no longer safe for me to continue to play. I am so grateful for this game and everything it has taught and brought into my life. Thank you to all my coaches and teammates throughout my career. 

“I am also so thankful for my family and wife who have supported me through all the ups and downs and special thank you to my dad. Spent countless hours, early mornings and late nights helping me reach my goal of always wanting to play in the NFL. I believe we were created beyond just playing the game. I know God has great plans for me and my family and I’m so excited for what he has in store for me next!”
