Rob Ninkovich Announcing Retirement

Recommended Posts

Always had good timing for sacks or forced fumbles. #50 has some rich history here in NE. Vrabel and Ninj represent well. Will miss him. We'll see if Grissom and Ealy are ready to play a big role. Flowers NEEDS another good year.

Sounds like they have Van Noy lining up as the Nink role in camp. Interesting.

Very sad to see that news. We don't have much depth at DE, and he was always an important player at critical times.

2 rings and some impact plays in key moments - is he a Patriots HoF possibility?

Such a well-respected guy and a great, underappreciated player for many years. From a football perspective this was probably the right time for him to retire but they'll definitely miss his leadership and experience.

I think if there weren't so many ahead of him, he'd have a shot. You still have guys like Vince Wilfork, Richard Seymour, Adam Vinatieri, Deion Branch, Rodney Harrison, Mike Vrabel, Matt Light, Lawyer Milloy, and Wes Welker. And those are only the guys that played in the BB era.
