FEATURE: Kingwood native Travis Swanson reflects on NFL career, future

That is a day that Swanson will never forget. It was when his daughter Kendyl Gray Swanson was born and, in turn, caused the former Kingwood High School and Arkansas Razorback star to reevaluate things following the completion of his fifth NFL season.

After talking with his wife Emily, on May 18, Swanson officially announced his retirement from the NFL in an Instagram post that was led with a photo of him holding little Kendyl.

“When it came down to it, it just felt like the right thing to do,” Swanson said. “I was kind of at that point of my career too where I was completely vested with all the benefits that the NFL has to offer, which was another big plus.”
