Eugene Monroe retires from NFL
Veteran offensive tackle Eugene Monroe is retiring. He was cut by the Baltimore Ravens this offseason. Monroe, 29, is a former ninth overall pick with the Jacksonville Jaguars. Monroe was on the trading block, but the Ravens couldn't find a deal they liked. Monroe became an outspoken proponent of medical marijuana and is investing in that business. Monroe wants the NFL to accept marijuana as an alternative for pain management. Follow me on Twitter: @AaronWilson_NFL Aaron Wilson covers the Texans for The Houston Chronicle.
