Kyle Boller apparently prefers life with a beauty queen to being smacked around by 300-pound defensive linemen.
One day after signing with the San Diego Chargers, the former Ravens quarterback has reportedly retired, according to Kevin Acee of the San Diego Union-Tribune.
He's just 31 years old, but after eight seasons Boller has had enough. He played with the Ravens, Rams and Raiders. He was selected by the Ravens in the first round of the 2003 NFL Draft as the 19th overall pick.
In 2004, his best season, Boller started all 16 games with the Ravens, completing 258 of 464 passes for 2,559 yards. He threw 13 touchdowns and 11 interceptions.
Boller married former Miss California and Miss USA runner-up Carrie Prejean in 2010. They had their first child in 2011.
