    It was reported at jayski.com this morning

    Carl Edwards to retire immediately?: #19-Carl Edwards is expected to announce Wednesday that he will retire immediately from NASCAR racing, according to sources familiar with his plans. Edwards, 37, spent 13 years in the Cup Series and won 28 times in 445 starts. No immediate reason was available for why Edwards would retire. Daniel Suarez will be named the replacement for Edwards at Joe Gibbs Racing, sources said. Suarez, from Mexico, became the first foreign-born driver to win a NASCAR national series when he earned the Xfinity Series title in 2016.(ESPN)
    AND: Joe Gibbs Racing is scheduled to hold two separate news conferences [Edwards retirement? Hamlin contract extension?) starting at 10:00am/et on Wednesday, January 11, 2017 from its headquarters in Huntersville, NC.(JGR)
    MORE: Edwards is leaving Joe Gibbs Racing to pursue other interests outside of driving and will not compete in 2017. On Wednesday, JGR will announce at a press conference that Daniel Suarez will replace Edwards as the driver of the team's #19 Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series Toyota. Suarez is the reigning NASCAR XFINITY Series champion. Representatives of Edwards and Joe Gibbs Racing declined comment. David Wilson, president of TRD, U.S.A., also declined comment on Edwards' departure.(FoxSports)(1-10-2017)

    I read that he's leaving on his own terms... not due to health, exclusively. I was worried that it may have been for a serious health condition, but he's just contented where he's at with life... without racing. I wouldn't be too surprised that he would want to come back though.

    Carl has a humorous side that is hard to catch sometimes.

    Check this Taurus commercial. Carl is driving and his passengers are the engineers that designed the Taurus.
    Some of the engineers did not know who Carl was., and some did.
    Carl has some pretty funny comments for these guys
