WR Donald Jones has decided to retire

Donald Jones has retired at the age of 25. The former Patriots and Bills wide receiver told FOX Sports 1 of his decision on Wednesday. Jones said he is retiring because of issues with his kidneys. Specifically, Jones has a condition called igA nephropathy, which can cause kidney failure. Jones underwent a physical with the Colts recently and while running on a treadmill, he charted a blood-pressure level of 250 over 110. Jones has been told a kidney transplant might be needed soon, so he is moving on from football.

Fantasy Analysis:

Jones was a free agent after the Patriots waived him a few weeks ago. He played three seasons with the Bills, catching 82 passes and six touchdowns. It sounds like an extremely scary situation for Jones, and I wish him great health in his future.
