Michael Strahan Retires
Michael Strahan has officially retired. As I previously reported, Strahan said he would retire, unless the New York Giants doubled his $4 million salary, to match Jason Taylor, a 6 time, all–pro defensive end, who plays for Miami Dolphins. Strahan has been selected for seven Pro Bowls, in his 15 year career with Giants.
“There is no way we win the Super Bowl last year without him. In fact, I would say we probably don’t even make the playoffs without him. Not only because of his play on the field, but what he did for us in the locker room, the leadership he provided, the way he dealt with the younger players and the example that he set. Those are going to be big shoes to fill.”
