BY to say goodbye

Bryant Young didn't come out and say that he was retiring. But he sure did leave the impression that this was his last season in the NFL.
"I'm just trying to get through this day," Young said when asked whether he was considering returning next year. "My days are numbered. Let's be real about it. I'll just leave it at that. Read into it how you may."
Young considered retiring last season but felt the ascendant 49ers had a good chance at the playoffs and that he wanted to be part of a postseason run.
"This has been probably one of the most emotional and one of the toughest years I've been through because of expectations," he said. "I'm trying to figure out where it all went wrong. It's been puzzling."
