07:52 AM ET 03.21 | Detroit Lions running back Jahvid Best has battled concussions in his NFL career. His teammate Nate Burleson has pleaded publicly for his teammate and friend to retire for his health's sake. But it's so hard to walk away from a career in the NFL, and Best doesn't seem ready to walk away yet. Best hasn't even played since November of the 2011 season. And it's not just teammates encouraging him to retire, neurologists won't clear him to play. But despite all that, Best says he is holding onto hope he can return to the NFL.

Please. Jahvid. Call it a day. You made some money. Time to let it go. Don't turn into Seau 2.0 just to scrape a couple mill out of it.

A great athlete for sure. But I agree it's time to follow another dream.

You can't spend $2 million if you're in a coma.
