[My San Antonio.com] While family and friends say they are unsure whether Kansas City Chiefs running back Priest Holmes will retire, they acknowledge his actions of late aren’t in keeping with what he usually does to prepare for the season.
“He hasn’t been carrying on as if he was going to play,” Holmes’ stepfather, Herman Morris, said. “Normally, he would be in the gym working out and have a routine going on. Right now, he seems to be laid back and relaxed and not wanting to think about it.”
Holmes could not be reached for comment. Morris said he’s been getting “mixed signals” from Holmes regarding his future.
“It has been difficult for him,” Morris said of Holmes. “He still has the desire to play. But he wants to weigh all of his options and make sure the final decision he makes is the final decision.”
