Jarrett Payton is done with competitive football.
For most, that might be a bigger deal -- especially when your dad is still widely regarded as one of the best running backs to play in the National Football League. But Jarrett Payton, the late Walter Payton's only son, just completed his own career that took him literally around the world. After playing collegiately at the University of Miami, Payton went from Nashville to Amsterdam to Montreal to Toronto. Last season, he played for the Chicago Slaughter of the Arena Football League.
Now, for the first time since he was about 14 years old, he won't be in pads, sweating and later aching. That's just fine by him.
