Former Detroit Lions 3rd-round pick Travis Swanson retires

Former Detroit Lions third-round pick Travis Swanson announced his retirement on Saturday morning via an Instagram post.

I decided to retire from the game of football. Those words are hard to write. However, I have a sense of comfort knowing Emily and I are walking away from this game with offers that were on the table. This ultimately came down to a family decision between Emily and I. When my daughter Kendyl was born and I first saw her, my heart expanded and completely changed my priorities.
