Not entirely unexpected, but still a stomach punch to Patriots fans nonetheless.

Reports: New England Patriots LB Tedy Bruschi will retire Monday


    BOSTON -- Tedy Bruschi is retiring after a 13-year career marked by an inspiring return to the New England Patriots as a starting linebacker eight months after a stroke.

    A person familiar with his decision told The Associated Press that the 36-year-old Bruschi will announce his retirement at a news conference at 10:45 a.m. ET on Monday morning at Gillette Stadium. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because no announcement had been made. The team declined to comment Sunday night.


Bruschi gets all the props in the world for managing to come back and play at a high level after that stroke. He gets all the respect in the world and while he may not necessarily be HOF-bound, he'll be a beloved Patriot forever.

He did a lot with limited talent, but tons of heart. I'm glad he retired a Pat.

I think Brett Favre has set the bar as to what a "stomach punch retirement" is. I'm glad Tedy saw the writing on the wall (Chris Cooley put it there as he blew by #54 Friday night) and decided to bow out, even though Belichick told him he was in no danger of being cut.



Holy fuck shit motherfucker shit. Read comics. Fuck shit shit fuck shit I sold out when I did my job. Fuck fuck fuck shit fuck. Sorry had to do it....

Never been a Patriot fan, but I've always been a Bruschi fan. The guy just embodies what a football player should be. A heckuva role model ...

Anyone that can run a spread option offense I would say. Forget getting a "Nebraska guy" like Pelini.
