NFL Linebacker Myles Jack reportedly said that prior to signing with the Philadelphia Eagles two weeks ago, he had other aspirations. The seasoned linebacker will now be able to carry them out.
According to a new report, Jack has informed the Eagles that he plans to retire after seven NFL seasons.
He and Zach Cunningham joined the team two weeks ago with the intention of competing for Nakobe Dean’s starting linebacker position.

Jack was demoted to the second team after spending part of the first week with the Eagles’ first team, which resulted in him playing just 29 snaps and entering the game late in the second half of the Eagles’ draw with the Cleveland Browns.
When Jack talked for the first time at training camp, he disclosed that until Budda Baker persuaded him to return to football, he had intended to become an electrician or a plumber.
