Default Keyshawn Retiring......

Quote:
Keyshawn Johnson will announce his retirement today, ending an NFL career in which the outspoken receiver was once one of the game's biggest threats.

He will join ESPN as a sportscaster and disclose his plans at a news conference in Los Angeles at USC, where he starred in college, two people familiar with Johnson's decision told the Associated Press. They spoke on condition of anonymity because the Johnson had yet to make the announcement.

ESPN.com first reported his retirement
.

Guess he isn't going to help the Titans.

Good for him, now he can take the role of "Loud Mouth Receiver" on ESPN in place of Michael Ervin.

The guy gets offered $7~8 million and he passes to be on ESPN? ESPN would have been there in two seasons, his heart is only for the money not the game.

I dont follow that logic... He turned down 7 to 8 million to retire, but its about the money??

Maybe he figured since the only team interested him was Tennessee, reality set in and it became painfully obvious that it was over and time to retire...

Read the article. He turned down the 7~8 million to take a higher paying job at ESPN.

So his choices were hey I can play another 2 season in the NFL or I can be some joke on ESPN. He went for the money.

I partially agree. I think he was wanting to be picked up by a team that could make a run at the Bowl. Seeing that the titans were one of the only teams interested, he elected to retire. We all know the chances of the titans going to the Bowl anytime soon are far less than ours.

i agree TB, maybe he was just tired, & wanted to retire in 1 piece, or really enjoys doing the commentating thing.

.................... & now it's time to go to the titans boards LOL about posts like "we didn't need/want him anyway" knowing just last week they were saying "Keyshawn could really be a great addition..."

The article doesn't say anything about 7-8 mil, in fact it says no offer was made and they were discussing ranges. Keyshawn mentioned $2.5 mil as what teams needed to be considering--doubt he would turn down $4 mil.

Here is the article I was talking about from the Tennessean:

WR Keyshawn Johnson turned down an offer by the Titans today in order to retire and join ESPN. According to reports, the offer made by the Titans was seriously considered by Johnson. “They offered in the $7 million-$8 million range over two (years) with a substantial portion of it guaranteed. It was tempting. But at the end of the day ESPN deal was so strong," Johnson's agent said.

I can understand BA's bitterness but there is something to be said about retiring in one piece and while he's not exactly at the top of his game he still had some left in the tank. His knees will thank him in 10 years

He was Fisher's ball boy when fisher was at USC. I really cannot understand his decision. I mean money is a powerful motivator but you only get this chance once during your life. To take the couch just seems like he lost heart. He was talking up mentoring Carolina's rookie WR during the draft now he has a chance to play under a young QB and a young WR core and he passes. Just seems odd to me.

I do not think it is all that hard to understand.

Carolina = Playoff contention w/ possiblity of SB (so says experts)
Titans = Possible but doubtful

He wants another SB ring not just playing for a team that is young and rebuilding.

I don't know about that word to describe the Titans. Demolishing might be a better choice.
