Bruschi to retire today

Boston Herald - [Full Article]

Tedy Bruschi still had a place on the Patriots. He wasn’t in danger of being slashed with roster cutdowns on tap this week. But that won’t stop the veteran linebacker from announcing his retirement in a press conference at Gillette Stadium this morning.

According to a source familiar with the situation, Bruschi just knew it was time to let go. He knew at age 36, already having suffered a stroke, with 13 pro seasons under his belt, he couldn’t contribute to the team in a matter that was suitable to him.

So he met with coach Bill Belichick late yesterday afternoon and went out on his own terms.
