It’s never easy to see as a fan, but it unfortunately happens to our favorite playersâ€”a decline.
Whether due to nagging injuries or old age, some of the guys we’ve admired for years just seem to fall off the face of the planet, underperforming on the field, while getting plenty of hate for a massive contract they’re not worth.

We have absolutely no idea what happened to the former All-Pro running back, but whatever it was, it definitely wasn’t good.
