49ers all-world linebacker Patrick Willis has had to deal with his share of injuries in the past few seasons. Apparently, it’s been enough for him to hang it up after playing just six games in 2014.
In a bit of a surprise, Willis has reportedly decided to retire after just turning 30 years old in January.
If that wasn’t bad enough news for Niners fans, Justin Smith is retiring as well. Obviously, this is a huge shake up for the Niners. It will be interesting to see if they can overcome all of this recent flux that they’ve had to deal with.
