    If I could do an avatar where I put my finger in my mouth and pop my cheek, I'd do it...whoopty-doo. I thought the guy owned a car dealership by now. Don't get me wrong. I liked the guy and all, it has just been a long time coming.

    "Jets running back Curtis Martin, the fourth leading rusher in NFL history who hasn't played since the 2005 season, will make it official this week and announce his retirement from the NFL.

    The news that he would retire this week was first reported by The New York Post.

    The Jets open training camp Friday and are expected to hold a news conference before camp begins to announce the running back's retirement.

    Last month, Martin re-worked his contract for a second straight year to provide the team more salary cap room."

    Awesome runner. At least he had one great season at the end and then 2 years of rehab. Just seems like forever ago he played.
