The Facts: Jennings, the 32-year-old free-agent tailback announced Friday on Twitter that he is retiring after eight seasons in the league. Jennings said in the video that he will be doing a press conference soon with the Giants, his most recent football employer.
Diehards Line: Best known outside of football for his Dancing With The Stars title run in Season 24 of his ABC dance competition show, Jennings' career as a professional football player was as unlikely, as he said in his retirement announcement, as his stint as a broadcast dancer. Jennings was drafted out of Liberty by the Jacksonville Jaguars in the seventh round in the 2009 draft. A dual-threat back in Jacksonville, Oakland and New York, Jennings finishes his career with 3,772 rushing yards, 1,468 receiving yards and 25 career touchdowns.
