    I would make it two sentences. Then they would all be okay. 

    Note, "after a decade or so", in A and B, suggests more time than "a decade" in C and D

    The grammar is ok, but you need a semi-colon between the two clauses. D also has an agreement problem- "many" should be "players".

    I don't think so; many quit after a decade of playing football.
