[Husker Extra] Finally, the back pain was too much for Eric Warfield.
He had accomplished much while hiding his soreness. He also was up to a handful of Advils a day.
“I couldn’t feel honest with myself and keep trying to keep my pain from the coaches,” the former Husker defensive back said. “I retired. I’ve got some things to do and I think I can heal up.”
“As for now football is over.”
Eight years with the Kansas City Chiefs. Three seasons with two national championship Nebraska teams and a short stint with the New England Patriots this summer.
“It’s enough,” said Warfield, who is living in Lincoln. “I’ve made enough money there is no pressure. I’m going to be talking with some people at Nebraska about finishing up my degree.”
