So in a matter of weeks he has done two major things that you would never expect an NFL player to do: retire fully healthy at the beginning of a promising career and give money back to the team. As if you didn't already like Chris Borland enough and feel sad about his departure, he goes and does this. And yes, Jed York (and every single person who comments on this site) could learn a thing or two about true class from Chris.
