Jetsfan0099 Icon : (16 April 2015 - 09:56 PM) Rex wsa fun, but he was too much with the defense instead of the entire football team
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (16 April 2015 - 09:57 PM) also he didn't always hold players accountable. I think Bowles will make the team more disciplined.
santana Icon : (17 April 2015 - 02:50 AM) I don't have any faith in bowles
azjetfan Icon : (17 April 2015 - 08:15 AM) “San Diego Chargers will ultimately make a deal with the Tennessee Titans for the number two overall pick. As part of that trade, the Chargers will send the number 17 overall pick and Philip Rivers, just as a start, for the number two pick.”
azjetfan Icon : (17 April 2015 - 08:15 AM) Damn... Who called it? This guy.

MikeGangGree... Icon : (17 April 2015 - 10:13 AM) So we would now lose out on maroita and rivers
MikeGangGree... Icon : (17 April 2015 - 10:13 AM) Ain't that super
Jetsfan115 Icon : (17 April 2015 - 01:39 PM) do we make a trade for AP?
santana Icon : (17 April 2015 - 02:41 PM) I believe the rivers stuff is all speculation
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (17 April 2015 - 03:38 PM) So a top ten qb and the 17th pick for the 2nd overall as a start? Makes sense
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (17 April 2015 - 03:39 PM) So Many smokescreens this time of year
Jetsfan115 Icon : (17 April 2015 - 04:08 PM) only 2 more weeks before we find out. draft day will be exciting
Jetsfan115 Icon : (17 April 2015 - 04:09 PM) my money is we'll take a pass rushing OLB

Brandon Stokley retires: Ex-Broncos receiver ends 15-year NFL career
By Mike Klis
The Denver Post
POSTED: 12/26/2013 03:59:14 PM


During a practice with the Baltimore Ravens this year, Brandon Stokley made a self-deprecating observation about his NFL career.

"You know, there's nobody who has played as long as me who has caught as few balls as me," Stokley said with a laugh to his receivers coach Jim Hostler.

There's a compliment in there, somewhere.

Start with only 18 NFL receivers have made it through 15 seasons. As usual, Stokley's instincts were impeccable. His 397 catches are easily the fewest of the group 160 less than No. 17 Troy Brown's 557.

Stokley won't catch up. The former Broncos slot receiver has played his last game. After talking it over with Ravens general manager Ozzie Newsome three weeks ago, Stokley knew he was finished playing.

Placed on season-ending injured reserve with his latest concussion, Stokley's retirement will become official when the Ravens' season ends. He no doubt could have played again next year, as dependable slot receivers are in short supply.

But Stokley is one of the few who is retiring on his terms.

"I'm glad I played this year because now I know I'm done," Stokley said Thursday in the living room of his Castle Rock home. "Had I not played this year I would have always felt I could have kept playing. I still know I can play but my body just can't go through it anymore."

A string of injuries was the reason why Stokley doesn't have the career stats of the other 15-year receivers. Character, the football intelligence of a coach's son, a team-above-self attitude and the ability to make the clutch catch on third down were why Stokley was always in demand.

"I think Brandon is the best teammate I've ever had," said Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning, who played with Stokley in Indianapolis from 2003-06 and again with the Broncos in 2012. "He's a guy you want on your team in your corner. Fifteen years as a slot receiver in the NFL, going across the middle, taking hits, it's almost unheard of."

The last hit was delivered by Minnesota linebacker Chad Greenway. It was hardly a big hit, which Newsome and Stokley took as a sign. In the fourth quarter of the Ravens' 29-26 win on Dec. 8, Stokley caught a 2-yard pass from Joe Flacco along the sideline. Greenway hit him around the chest, not the head. Stokley's head didn't hit the ground but he suffered a concussion anyway.

It's been reported that it was Stokley's 13th concussion, although he doesn't think it was that many.

"I don't know how you describe a concussion," he said.

What medical science has determined with cumulative concussions is it takes less impact on each subsequent hit to cause the next brain injury. Three weeks after getting tackled by Greenway, Stokley still has to monitor his exertion.

He sat on his couch Thursday with his son Cameron between him and wife Lana while Carson was running to and fro in the living room that offered a spectacular view of the Rocky Mountains.

"Of course you worry about it but I never wanted to be the reason why he stopped playing," Lana said. "We would talk. But I knew he would know when it was time to stop playing. I just didn't want him to have any regrets."

Said Stokley: "If in 30 years I'm feeling fine and I would have stopped playing football four or five years ago it would have been, 'Why did I stop?' You can't predict the future. So I was all in with football until I knew it was time for me to stop playing."

He's won two Super Bowl rings with Baltimore in 2000 and Indianapolis in 2006. And of those 397 catches, 160 came on third down, 133 for first downs an incredible 83.1 percent conversion rate.

"I guarantee you every quarterback he's played with, whether (Trent) Dilfer or (Jay) Cutler all the guys would tell you how great a teammate and how thankful they were that he was in the slot," Manning said, "because you knew he was going to get open on a critical third down and make that big catch."

Stokley said his immediate retirement plans were to serve as Lana's personnel assistant and help raise their sons Cameron and Carson.

Yeah this was a funny quote. That said the man has nothing to complain about. Few have long careers in the NFL so whether he caught few footballs or a lot he succeeded where few have with a long career.
