Dat Nguyen gave a brief interview while signing books at an appearance on Monday night. While he didn't confirm his retirement, he came pretty close.
That's pretty close to confirming it and later in the article when he talks about not walking with a cane and being able to play with his two daughters, he's ready to go. I've written often about the kind of player and the kind of person Dat is, and how he's represented this franchise with excellence and class. I wish nothing but good fortune for his future and salute his career with Dallas.
It's interesting how he knew the time had come. It all crystallized for him on one play against Oakland.
By the way, Dat rules out coaching as a post-football career instead saying he wants to focus on charities.
I'll give Dat the last word.
