Keyshawn retires

Keyshawn is retiring according to ESPN.

Keyshawn Johnson has declined an offer from the Tennessee Titans and has decided to retire.

The wide receiver, who also expected to receive an offer from the Oakland Raiders, is expected to announce his decision at a Wednesday afternoon news conference at his alma mater of USC, his agent, Jerome Stanley, told's John Clayton.

Johnson will pursue a broadcasting career with ESPN.

I’m actually a little surprised. I thought he would catch on somewhere else and continue to play. But Keyshawn was always a natural for TV, so I guess there comes a day when beating up your body loses out to a cushy schedule and plenty of time to relax and live the good life. You just don’t get paid as well and the adrenaline rush of game day is never matched.
