return to the team and play next season.

“It’s still a process,” Fletcher said. “Understand I do this every year,  probably the last four or five years. It’s just when you get older in your career, you have to evaluate everything. Health is one thing. Can I still do it at the level that I want to do it at and play at?  So this year is no different than those years in the past.”

Fletcher spoke at an appearance for a financial video game. He was asked if he could imagine himself not playing football.

“I think we all, as athletes, have to imagine ourselves not playing football,” he said. “If you don’t picture yourself not playing, then you won’t be prepared. So obviously I have thought about that. I have thought about that for a number of years. So it’s just a matter of taking it one day at a time. It’s a process, again. I’m not going to rush anything, just continue to see how I feel.”
