LOS ANGELES — Running back Todd Gurley is done playing football, he told NFL Network Thursday.
Gurley was drafted ranked No. 10 overall by the Rams in 2015 while the franchise was in St. Louis.
Gurley told NFL Network that he didn’t file his retirement papers, but said he doesn’t think he’s done playing football.
The running back last played for the Atlanta Falcons in the 2020 season and rushed for 678 yards and nine touchdowns in 15 games. Gurley spent his first five NFL seasons with the Rams before being cut in March 2020. In 2018, the Rams signed Gurley to a four-year, $60 million contract extension that made him the highest-paid running back in NFL history.
In his six NFL seasons, Gurley was named to the All-Pro team twice and to the Pro Bowl three times. He was named NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year in 2015 and Offensive Player of the Year in 2017.
Gurley finished his NFL career with 6,082 rushing yards and 67 touchdowns in 88 games. He also caught 243 passes for 2,254 yards and 13 touchdowns.
