Though he somehow made the Pro Bowl (he was ranked as the 28th-best center by Pro Football Focus), Saturday has decided it’s time to end his career.
He told 1070 The Fan in Indianapolis (via PFT) that Sunday’s Pro Bowl will be the last game of his career.
“We’ll finish it with sunsets in Hawaii and call it a much better career than I would have anticipated,” Saturday said on the Grady & Big Joe Show.
And with that, he’ll end a 14-year career in which he made six Pro Bowls and has a chance at landing a spot in the Hall of Fame.
Earlier in the week, Saturday said he would wait until after the Pro Bowl before figuring out his future. Apparently, he quickly changed his mind.
Naturally, Saturday will be remembered for having a great career snapping the ball to Peyton Manning in Indianapolis. And for this awesome post-lockout image with Patriots owner Bob Kraft.
