Chiefs safety Husain Abdullah retires

Kansas City Chiefs safety Husain Abdullah retired after seven NFL seasons. Abdullah, 31, cited concussions as a concern. “Sitting for five weeks last year after suffering the fifth concussion of my career, I had a lot to contemplate,” Abdullah wrote on Twitter. “My goals moving forward are to be of benefit to my family, my community, my country and hopefully the world. Having a sound mind will be vital in accomplishing these goals.” Abdullah is a former Minnesota Vikings player. He had 104 tackles, two interceptions and 15 pass deflections in three seasons with the Chiefs. “The Kansas City Chiefs will forever have a special place in my heart,” Abdullah wrote. “After sitting out of football to fulfill my Hajj Pilgrimage in 2012, the Chiefs were the first to call. The three years I spent playing for KC may have been the most enjoyable football experience in my entire life. Thank you.” “Thank you to everyone I’ve crossed paths with during my time as a player. You’ve had an impact on my life for the better. Thanks for the love and support. It’s greatly appreciated.” Follow me on Twitter: @AaronWilson_NFL Aaron Wilson covers the Texans for The Houston Chronicle.
