Indianapolis Colts linebacker Robert Mathis, 35, on Friday made his announcement that after the Colts final regular season game at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis Indiana will be final football game of his 14 year career in the National Football League career.Mathis was a fifth round draft choice of the Indianapolis Colts in the 2003 National Football League Draft out of Alabama A & M who played his entire career with one team which is rare in thus era of free agency.One lesson that all of can learn is that despite the fact that Mathis played his college football at a small school like Alabama A & M, he faced down his detractors who said he could not make in the National Football League.Mathis used the negative talk from his critics that he was too small to play in the NFL to work hard to become one of the best Colts players of all time. Mathis did win one Super Bowl ring with the 2006 Indianapolis Colts who beat the Chicago Bears in Super Bowl XLI.The Colts (7-8) final regular season game will be against the Jacksonville Jaguars (3-12) on Sunday afternoon. Mathis is making a smart decision to leave after 14 years playing in the National Football League since he values being able to walk away on his feet from the game he loved playing.News source is ESPN.com and the image is courtesy of Pinterest.com
