One and Done
Former Ohio State defensive tackle Quinn Pitcock has decided
to hang up his cleats after playing in just one season in the NFL. The third
round pick decided to retire after “much deliberation and careful thought,”
according to his agent Brad Leshnock. The reason for his retirement remains a
mystery and it is perplexing to a team that expected Pitcock to be a solid defensive
player this season for the Colts. According to Colts defensive tackle Nader
Abdallah, “some things came up in his life which I can’t speak for.”
Last Minute Change of Mind
Though Pitcock decided to retire, Tony Dungy and the Colts
front office are willing to give Pitcock a second chance should he want to
reconsider his decision. On the other hand, if Pitcock doesn’t change his mind,
the Colts could try to get some of his $436,500 signing bonus back.More
information on Pitcock’s retirement is bound to leak out in the near future.
Some say that Pitcock was driving to camp, had some kind of breakdown, turned
around and didn’t come back. Regardless, Brutusreport.com will keep you abreast
on the situation as it unravels.
Quinn Pitcock played in nine games while recording thirty tackles
