DENVER -- Unwilling to be a bit player with the Broncos, Jerry Rice retired Monday, closing a 20-year career for the most productive receiver in NFL history.

The greatest receiver of all time and one of the main reasons Joe Montana was one of the most overrated QBs of all time.

Jerry was always a class act. I'll miss seeing him out on the field on Sundays.

I thought Jerry was one of the players, like Favre, who says it's not his job to mentor players? Perhaps that was only during his playing days, but I wouldn't want a guy who had an attitude like that tutoring my players.

During the practices with Denver, Jerry was talking to the media and they mentioned how Andre has always looked up to him, etc. etc. Then Andre, during the middle of the interview, comes strolling up and Jerry right there offered Andre to come work out with him (and probably some other players) during the offseason. It was on the Texans Home page..

Broncos showed great :respect: for Rice by not cutting him in the last round of cuts and letting him go out on his own terms.
