I don't think he retired by choice. I'm not a CFL expert but I think with their money problems, Davis came to be expendable in their salary structure. As a veteran, they would have to pay him much more than a rookie, so I think he got cut and there was no market for him
Leaving in Canada, I know the CFL pretty well...Troy Davis is older now, and just doesnt have what he used to have. Plus he is a proven veteran which demands more money and with the salary cap there are so many more options.
Of other interestin notes...Rashaun Woods was also let go.
i heard that davis is trying to make a comeback but nobody will sign him. i wonder what ever happened to darren davis or youngest brother jason? jason was supposed to play for isu but i think he had troubles with the law? they had an older brother named eddie who played at a small school in upper iowa. i forget the name, but a friend of mine was on the team. he and eddie were both all american RBs... 2 all american RBs in the same backfield!
