It looks like the Baltimore Ravens had an unexpected hiccup in their team for the 2017 season since their mathematician player John Urschel abruptly retired from the NFL sport.
It’s said that Urschel did attend all the offseason camps, but when it came to the official 2017 training camp, he was a no show yesterday.

The statement that was put on the team’s site had some of the head coach’s words include. Here is what they said, “This morning John Urschel informed of his decision to retire from football,” Head Coach John Harbaugh said in a statement. “We respect John and respect his decision. We appreciate his efforts over the past three years and wish him all the best in his future endeavors.”
It’s no secret that at just 26 years old, Urschel is something of a mathematic genius.
The man proudly has a Ph.D candidate in math at Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and “gets straight A’s.”
You can check out Urschel’s MIT profile that tells you his accomplishments in problems and such regarding math.
As for the Ravens, they had Urschel competing for the starting center spot since they traded Jeremy Zuttah to the 49ers .
So far no official statement has been released by John Urschel regarding his retirement from the NFL.
