    Had a subpar 2015 season, probably better to retire than keep playing with declining skills. Good for him.

    Reminds me a little of Lynn Swann, who retired after playing only eight seasons (1974-82). Except Swann won four Super Bowls in those eight years, Megatron never won a single playoff game

    I loved marshawn Lynch's retirement tweet, pair of shoes thrown over a line and a peace sign. Nice to see guys quit when they still have gas in the tank instead of being completely broken down and having fickle fans accuse them of stealing for not quitting earlier

    Schmidt starred in "Name That Pussy" iirc. Howard was mortified. Today, he'd cry along with him.

    Think the concussion thing is now a factor for some these guys... he has his money and is well respected. .. walking away isn't a bad thing
