After sustaining a third concussion in two seasons, Titans defensive end Dave Ball briefly considered retirement, Jim Wyatt of The Tennessean reports.
Those thoughts behind him, Ball plans to continue his career, hopefully with the Titans.
“After I was able to play the rest of the season after those concussion issues, and was able to be fine, it’s not something I thought about much more,” Ball said. “I just know now I am feeling good, feeling healthy, and feeling like I am ready to contribute again somewhere. Hopefully it will be in Tennessee.”
A fifth-round pick out of UCLA by the San Diego Chargers, Ball bounced between San Diego, the New York Jets and Carolina Panthers before landing in Nashville in 2008. In 51 games with the Titans, Ball has 113 tackles, 15.5 sacks and an interceptions
