Jermon Bushrod knew it was time to hang up his cleats.

Deep inside, the offensive tackle still has the desire to play. But after 12 professional seasons, seven with the New Orleans Saints, the 35-year-old Bushrod had to start listening to his body.

ďMy heartís always going to be in it, but my mind and body kind of gave me the answer,Ē Bushrod said Thursday at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome. ďIn my heart of hearts, Iíll be 55 years old and feel like I could still go block somebody. You know itís not going to happen, but thatís jut the competitor in me.Ē



Bushrod announced his retirement from the NFL during a third-quarter appearance on the Saints television network.

He will sign a ceremonial one-day contract Friday and retire as a member of the Saints.

Not a lot of NFL players come out of Towson University in Maryland.

He was great. Vilma sounded a little full of himself though, and no one covered the plays in the third quarter! I felt lucky to see the snap of the ball instead of the booth going on and on about the past.....
