Whenever they choose, usually it's because of injury or being inadequate on the field due to aging. If the player wasn't a free agent, then they still have contract requirements if they choose to return.

What rights do you have if you don't want to retire?

This depends upon which state you are in and what job you hold. In general, it's illegal age discrimination for a company to force people under the age of 75 to retire. However, the courts have found that workers with certain jobs, like airline pilots, can be forced to retire at 65. Also, executives can be forced to retire at 65. The best bet is to contact the nearest EEOC office and see if you have a case for age discrimination.

What age can you retire from army?

Enlisting was changed to 42. I do not believe there is a mandatory retirement age. Admiral Rickover was forced to retire in his 80's after 63 years of service on 31 January 1982. Of course it is more at the discretion of the individual service and the ability of the soldier or sailor to do his assigned tasks, his physical ability.
