Some veterans want to wait until training camps are over to come back for another go-round.
But Elvis Dumervil has decided the week before the season he won’t be coming back again.
The veteran pass-rusher announced his retirement after 12 years in the league Sean Taylor Jersey , calling it a “difficult decision to step away from the NFL at this time.”
He mentioned that his “body still feels great, and I know I can help a team win,” but that he has chosen to devote his energies to his family and his real estate business.
He signed with the 49ers last June Sam Huff Jersey , and posted 6.5 sacks. In 12 seasons, he had 105.5, which is 26th on the all-time list. A five-time Pro Bowler Kenny Clark Jersey , Dumervil had a pair of 17.0-sack seasons, one each with the Ravens and Broncos.
The Tennessee Titans' secondary has taken another hit with cornerback Kalen Reed becoming their third defensive back to get placed on injured reserve this preseason.
Reed joins safety Jonathan Cyprien and cornerback Tye Smith. Cyprien, who started 10 games for the Titans last season Joe Looney Jersey , tore his anterior cruciate ligament during a noncontact play in practice.
The Titans attempted to build depth in their secondary Monday by bringing back Josh Kalu.
Kalu had been waived by the Titans last week but agreed to terms with them Monday. He originally signed with the Titans in May as an undrafted free agent from Nebraska.
Kalu, who is 6 feet and 203 pounds, was a 37-game starter at Nebraska as a cornerback and safety.
