NFL | Sanders Retired Due to Frustration, Exhaustion

Former Detroit Lions RB Barry Sanders says he retired prematurely from the NFL because of the team's perceived lack of commitment to building a winning team. According to the Associated Press, Sanders has written a new book, "Barry Sanders: Now You See Him … His Story in His Own Words," in which he says a "communications gap" opened between him and the Lions' front office as the team unloaded quality players. Sanders retired following the 1998 season at the age of 31, and is currently the NFL's third all-time leading rusher.
