San Francisco 49ers linebacker Tavares Gooden may have announced his retirement via Twitter on Friday:
I think it’s time for me to retire and move on to the next chapter in life. Livvvv.

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.
