What a joke he is...Now you can say he quit instead of retired. Unless your Cheech Marin, preists or whatever he is can't be carrying guns.

Wow. What an odd way to take a self demotion in pay.

Sounds like he's just playing for fun...

“A lot of people think that because I quit, I don’t like football or I have something against it,” Coffee said. “It’s not like that. As a recreational sport, I still dig it. It’s just not what I wanted to do with my life.”

If he really wanted back in the NFL, he could unretire, then he would [likely] be released by us and become a FA to sign with any team to go to training camp.

Of course, that assumes there will be a season

He's just following god's will, which apparently involves taking online classes, getting pulled over for speeding with an unregistered firearm and playing semi-pro football.

Thats the life
I'm starting to think that Sing really must have pushed hard for this pick because Coffee is a fellow Bible thumper just like Sing.
F**k him. Didn't want to be a Niner, he can go rot in some semi-pro league playing as a safety for all I care. He's a scared punk IMO.
s**t talkers
I dont know why people hate on this guy. He just didnt have an interest in making football his number priority. Personally speaking, im glad he left the team, rather than having him out on the field only giving 50% effort. Consequently, hurting us in the long run. So, i thank him for having the courage to retire.

I saw and interview of him where he stated that, people around him, pushed him to play football most of his life because he had talent at an early age. And when he end up in the NFL he felt like he was just going through the motions. He also said that he had a talk with Singletary after his rookie season letting him know that his heart just wasn't in it anymore, so the niners were well aware. I think at that point the niners should have just tried to go in a different direction.

Just to think we had an opportunity to have Gore and Blunt in the backfield makes me
