No official word as yet on why, but I’ll update when I can.
Update: this from Devin’s twitter -
"God has blessed me w achieving a childhood dream. I want to give back to my hometown and coach/mentor kids so they can reach their own. 1LUV"
Obviously opens up a spot for WR Dane Sanzenbacher or a 4th running back to make the roster, not sure what inspired Devin to leave the game, maybe we’ll find out in time.
Good luck, Devin! I hope you enjoy retirement.
**also in case you were wondering, per Biggs: ”Bears gave Devin Thomas zero signing bonus. He had 1-yr deal for minimum salary benefit, meaning he would earn $700K & count $540K vs cap.”**
