49ers’ LB Tavares Gooden: “I Think It’s Time for Me to Retire”


San Francisco 49ers linebacker Tavares Gooden may have announced his retirement via Twitter on Friday:

Gooden is a free agent and has visited with the Steelers and Cardinals. His agent claimed that the Twitter post was not an official statement.

The 28-year old Gooden mostly played on special teams for the 49ers. He had nine tackles in 15 games last season.
