Patrick Willis posts on Instagram he has not had second thoughts about retirement decision

New, comments

The hubbub this morning surrounded Jason Cole's report that Patrick Willis is considering a comeback. Our own Jennifer Chan heard some buzz as well, although her source was doubtful it would happen.

Willis himself has quickly shot down the reports with a post on Instagram. Here is the caption to the picture down below:

I MADE MY DECISION BACK IN APRIL AND I HAVEN'T THOUGHT TWICE ABOUT IT; NOR‼️ PLAYING ANOTHER DOWN IN THE NFL...PERIOD‼️‼️‼️...SO QUIT TRYING TO BRING LIFE; on a CHAPTER that I have already CLOSED IN MY HEART and MIND...MY FOCUS IS IN THE PERFCT PLACE RIGHT NOW AND THAT IS ALL THAT MATTERS TO ME...My PURPOSE 4 Life IS SO MUCH BIGGER THAN FOOTBALL; FOR I AM GRATEFUL FOR THE TIME I WAS BLESSED TO PLAY ....IN THE GREAT WORDS OF 2-PAC #LIFEGOESON

And so, we can quickly move on from that, and not get our hopes up too high. Anything is possible, but at this point, it seems highly unlikely that we see Willis on the football field again.
