Last year's 3rd round pick retires on 49ers

Glen Coffee was not present for practice on Thursday for the San Francisco 49ers and he didn’t show up at practice again this morning.

Now, there is a perfectly good explanation for his absence.

Coffee has decided to retire from the NFL, according to Matt Maiocco of CSN Bay Area.

So much for that third-round draft pick. The 49ers selected Coffee in the third round from Alabama just a year ago. Coffee was expected to be the primary backup to starter Frank Gore this season. He was expected to have a role on special teams. Now, poof, he’s vanished.

just like the New Orleans Saints are.
