Neck problems resurface, so Priest Holmes put himself out of his misery.

ESPN - Holmes retires, ending brief NFL comeback


    Four-time Pro Bowl tailback Priest Holmes, who returned to the field with the Kansas City Chiefs last month following nearly two years of inactivity, has decided to leave the game, and announced his retirement at a Wednesday afternoon news conference.


Had his single-season TD record stood, he'd be a sure Hall of Famer. Tomlinson shattering the record in such a short amount of time, however, probably leaves Holmes destined to stay on the outside looking in.

Still, gotta admire him for at least attempting a comeback this year.

Sorry to see him go out. I saw him play in person once, and I thought he was just amazing. I haven't been to too many NFL games, but that one will always stand out for me. A game against the Jets in 2002 he ran for 152 yards and a TD. He also caught the ball for nearly 100 yards and another score as well. He was on top of his game there.

For two or three years he was phenomenal (especially in the world of Fantasy Football) but at then end of the day he never won anything and his peak was relatively short lived.

A fine back to be sure, and sad to see his career cut short by injury, but a Hall of Famer he ain't.

His Super Bowl ring from the Ravens begs to differ...

Fair point well put, completely forgot he was in Baltimore back then.

I'm putting it down to old age. That, and I'm an idiot.

Well, to be fair, people forget that Trent Dilfer has a ring from the same team.

Thus forever de-valuing a Super Bowl ring.
