What a wonderful man and an incredible player. He will be missed from this team, hopefully, he still can find a home in the organization. I know I felt when my favorite player retired. So... I am truly sorry to all of you Bruschi Backers.

What a great career for a class guy and a tremendous player. Although it is sad to see the end of Tedy Bruschi's playing career it is good to see him go out on his terms when he knew the time was right. What memories, wow.

The Herald's Ian Rapaport:
Tedy Bruschi went to Patriotâ€™s coach Bill Belichick today and told
him he was done, according to a source familiar with the situation
told The Boston Herald.
Bruschi planned to retire.
It was that simple. The vet
eran linebacker was not given any
indication from the coaching staff that he should be concerned for
his job with cuts on the horizon. Bruschi apparently came to the
realization following the Washington game that he couldnâ€™t play up
to a level that he desired. So heâ€™s calling it quits.
