The Best Linebacker to have ever played the game of football will be hanging up his pads at the end of this season. As much as i will hate to see him go it is time.

Oh and if you have to ask who it is then you dont deserve to be on this site!!!!!!!!"

Ronde Barber has said he'll probably retire if Morris gets sacked so thats pretty likely at this point

Tony Gonzalez signs a 1 year extension so strike his name off the list.

I wonder if we have seen the last of Hines Ward, LaDainian Tomlinson and Steve Hutchinson. The latter two have already mentioned they are contemplating retirement.

Derrick Mason has retired with 943 receptions for 12,061 yds and 66 TDs.

http://profootball.scout.com/a.z?s=1...=5895645&fhn=1

"I'm done," Mason told Scout in a telephone interview "I won't be playing football. I only knew one play to play football, going all-out and having fun out there."

Mason, 37, caught 19 passes for 170 yards this season with the Jets and Texans after being cut by the Ravens prior to training camp.

Always a candid interview as a player, Mason plans to pursue a career in the media. He has appeared on NFL Network and other outlets since being let go by the Texans.

"I'm spending some time at home and doing as much as I can to really get entrenched in some broadcasting network whether it be nationally or do something here locally," Mason said. "I enjoy it a lot."

Other than not winning a Super Bowl, he played in one with the Titans when they lost to the St. Louis Rams, Mason leaves the game with no regrets.

"That's one thing, I leave it healthy and able to run and walk and not take a half-hour or 45 minutes to get out of bed," Mason said. "I can jump right out of the bed and go. I don't have lingering pains as of now. Me leaving now, even though it didn't happen the way I wanted it to happen, I had a good run. It was fun while it lasted."

I reckon if the Ravens get to the Superbowl but don't win, Ray Lewis will not retire. If one and done, he could do. If he wins the Superbowl he'll probably retire, hope he doesn't though.
Brian Dawkins will probably retire as well.

A lot of speculation about Hines to retire. I think the Steelers want it to go that way as we have to cut some high paid vets to reach the cap next year and at 4th on the depth chart you have to think that Hines would be 1 of them casualty's. Although last night he apparently said that he wants to play for another 2 years?!


Aaron Smith has said that he will retire a Steeler and I don't expect to see him back next year.

Chris Hoke is almost certain to retire as well - he suffered a bad neck injury this year and is also a UFA.

I don't expect to see Charlie Batch back next year although I reckon he'll hold off handing in the retirement papers.

Agree with you both on Hines Ward and Brian Dawkins. Ward is due $4m next season and was the Steelers #5 WR in the wildcard game. The Steelers also made a big effort in Week 17 to let Ward reach the 1,000 reception milestone. Dawkins will be 39 next October, is due $6m was reported a few days ago by the NFL Network's Jeff Darlington that his neck injury is "career threatening."

Batch is so old he was the last starting QB of Barry Sanders' career.

From the Chargers, both Kris Dielman and Nick Hardwick are both contemplating retirement although I don't think either will
