I know a lot of you no longer watch the NFL, but for those of you who do, get ready to make some adjustments to your fantasy drafts.
Jets wideout Corey Davis has decided to call it quits, reported Outkick.
Davis is only 28 years old, having played in the NFL for six seasons.
Davis was taken 5th overall by the Titans in the 2017 NFL Draft, which means he should have been a "can't miss" wide receiver.
Unfortunately for Davis, he has not exactly had much talent under center to get him the ball, which makes his announcement all the more baffling.
In six seasons, Davis had 273 receptions for 3,879 yards and 17 TDs. Not exactly what one would consider first-round stats.
BUT, with Aaron Rodgers now in New York, this could have been a breakout season for him.
Believe me, I get the frustration he is experiencing, but this could have been THE year for him.
Regardless, he stated, "For some time now I've been contemplating stepping away from the sport of football. This decision has not been easy. Although I am a deep person, I am a man of few words. I've been searching my heart for what to do and I feel that stepping away from the game is the best path for me at this time.
"I have more blessings than I could have ever imagined – I have an amazing family, a beautiful wife and two healthy children that I look forward to spending more time with. I am truly grateful for all the opportunities I have had and will continue to have on my journey. Thank you to my family and friends and the Jets organization for supporting me through this process," reported Fox News.

To walk away from a deal that would have paid him $10.5 million this season, finally with a legitimate QB, a big season and he could have doubled that salary next season.
Rodgers will now rely on Garrett Wilson and his old buddy from the Packers, Randal Cobb to get the ball downfield. He also has former Packer Allen Lazard and Mecole Hardman in his WR corps, so I think we can expect the ball to fly in New York this year.
