Kerry Collins Retires

Updated: July 7, 2011

While I will never forgive or forget some of the rants he made at the beginning of his career, I do respect the career that Kerry Collins made for himself.  That career has ended today with the announcement of Collin’s retirement.  Apparently he was serious about not holding the clipboard for Jake Locker.

Lots of people did not know that Collins was approaching some serious passing records in the later stage of his career.  He is one of only 12 players to finish with over 40,000 passing yards in a career.  He also took the Giants to a Super Bowl in which they were defeated by the 2000 Ravens.
