FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) Rodney Harrison is done hitting quarterbacks.

The two-time Pro Bowl safety announced his retirement on Wednesday after a 15-year career for the New England Patriots and San Diego Chargers.

The 36-year-old Harrison holds the NFL record for defensive backs with 30 1/2 sacks. He also has 34 interceptions, making him the only player to have at least 30 of each.

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) — AP wire has also confirmed that Rodney Harrison, though leaving the game, has not retired from being a premiere thug and cheap shot specialist.

Harrison has been teamed with Emmitt Smith as a sports broadcast team, and word is that he will be allowed to punch Emmitt in the face everytime he mispronounces a word and kick Emmitt in the va-jay-jay everytime he uses the wrong pronoun.

The two-time Pro Bowl safety will continue this practice until therapy and rehabilitation help him work out his chronic 'roid rage.

A broadcast executive stated that this is a win-win situation for all involved.

Good thing we will no longer be watching Mr. Cheapshot's dirty style of play. He sure would have been a perfect fit for the 70s raiders, the raider teams who enjoyed playing dirty

The NFL has just become a safer work environment.

Do you think the leagues insurance rate will go down? :wink02:

To quote a line from Fight Club..."He will not be missed."

:chuckle:
Lets just say he will be VERY passionate about the most trivial of things and probably not easy to understand....you know...like John Madden

Cheating, cheap shot artist, and a New England Patriot.

Good riddance, he was truly a piece of crap.

He was voted the League's 2X Dirtiest Player for a reason.

Here's an interesting debate about whether or not Rodney is HOF-bound:

http://www.nfl.com/news/story?id=09000d5d810a5f1c&template=with-video-with-comments&confirm=true

Good analysis. I agree, he's an integral leader of a great defense and 2 superbowl winning teams, along with two probowls and 30 + interceptions/ 30 + sacks, but what he lacks is character. He was called dirty by peers, and voted twice as the dirtiest player in the league. He also used HGH to recover faster from injury, so the motive isnt all that bad, but it's illegal nontheless.

~All in all, even though it makes me sick to my stomach, i think he might be worth a look. But in the end i give him the thumbs down in the most unbiased way possible.

He played for the bestest, most wonderfulest team ever! Of course he's a lock for the HoF! First ballot! Book it! :coffee:

Best post in that comment section, IMO:

Put them all in the hall of shame. Make a statue of Harrison with a bottle of HGH in his hand. Another statue of Belichek and Brady behind a hidden video camera and one of that convict on a snow plow. That will about sum up the patriots. :applaudit:

I actually had worked with his wife briefly at a company...I guess I shouldnt say for privacy reasons...but she knew he was a dirty player, apparently it was something he like to talk about.

I thought you called him an anal cyst. I had to re-read the post to clarify. (I am sure that roids probably cause those to.)

I am sure plenty of receivers are glad to see the end of him.

No to the HOF. Character doesn't count when it comes to the NFL HOF< otherwise LT, Michael Irvin would have never been inducted and OJ would have been stripped, but there are other reasons not to allow him in.

Yes he would... and I'd take him! :wink02:

LOL... of course the Raiders played dirty... just like the Steelers. That's how it was back then. The Raiders just did it better. No one wanted to be on the field with the Raiders. "We're going to kick your ass all over this field...... do something about it... if you can". :sofunny:

Yep the raiders sure were better at playing dirty but them steelers were better at winning

A call here, a call there... a few plays here and there... both teams were pretty much evenly matched. The Steelers got the breaks here and there, hence, they won a few more. That's how it goes.

I wouldn't consider him for the HOF simply because he's a giant DOUCHEBAG.

So sad to see you go dirtball - NOT.

I thought Harrison's best years were in San Diego. He was a good player, tough guy that played on the edge of dirty........and that's OK by me.

I dont think he is a HOF candidate, he really was a bit of a mix between Sammy Knight and Ken Easley. But not in the league of Ronnie Lott, Donnie Shell or even Nolan Cromwell.

He was probably one of my least favorite football players of all time...
