Troy Brown Officially Retires

Matt's Pats BlogAnalyst ISeptember 25, 2008

Quite possibly the classiest, most professional Patriots player in history has just retired from the NFL. Troy Brown (a.k.a Mr. Versatility) has decided to officially call it quits. "You can't outrun Father Time, as hard as you try to do it," he said. "There comes a time when you say 'I can't keep up the way I used to.'"

Although other teams pursued Brown in the offseason, he couldn't find it in himself to sign elsewhere: "I had the opportunity to do it, but it didn't feel right," he said of the chance to sign with the Jets, saying he didn't like the look of green and white.

Brown has played WR/CB/QB/KR/PR in his career as a Patriot and will be remembered for his consistent effort, his timely plays and his professional demeanor in all aspects of life. Brown spent his entire career as a New England Patriot.

We will be starting a petition for a Troy Brown statue outside of Gillette Stadium in the near future.
