Michael Strahan retires


The Cowboys won’t be dealing with one of the best pass-rushers in NFL history two times a year any longer. The gap-toothed one, Michael Strahan, has decided it’s time to hang up the cleats.

"It was important that my teammates knew which way I was going before they got on the field to start the work to defend our title," the team's all-time sack leader said from California. "It's time. I'm done."

Even though Strahan played for a rival and tormented the Cowboys on many occasions, I always respected his skill. The guy was one of the best at what he does and deserves recognition for that. But…I’m shedding no tears over his retirement. Good luck on whatever you’re going to do in the future Michael, but I’m happy that we won’t be game-planning for you any longer.
