In a Career Association, players decide at the end of each season whether to return for another season or to retire. Factors involved in their decision include the number of seasons they have played, how well they performed in the previous season, and how well their team performed in the previous season. Any player who has suffered a career-ending injury will retire at this time as well. Notification that players have retired appears in the Team News and Association News screens. You can view retired players statistics from the Association Statistics screen.
