Quarterback Sage Rosenfels announces retirement
Veteran quarterback Sage Rosenfels announced his retirement on Facebook Sunday night.
Lost in all the joy over having an incredibly young and talented group of quarterbacks in the NFL is the fact that such a group pushes mid-level veterans out of the game earlier. Perfect example: Sage Rosenfels announced his retirment on Sunday night.
The veteran backup, who started 12 games over 10 seasons with the Dolphins, Texans, Vikings and Giants, penned a lengthy post to friends and family on Facebook (via Adam Caplan of TheSidelineView.com) announcing his decision.
"I always knew the day would come. I just didn’t think I’d be 35 when it finally happened. I will soon be turning in my paperwork to the NFL and formally retiring after a 12 year career," Rosenfels wrote. "Like most NFL players, I wish I could have played a couple more seasons, but usually the league is done with you before you are done with it."
He threw 30 touchdowns to 29 interceptions and went 6-3 starting games for the Texans in 2007 and 2008. He'll best be remembered, however, for his helicoptering ability:
