Quote:
Four-time Pro Bowl tailback Priest Holmes, who returned to the field with the Kansas City Chiefs last month following nearly two years of inactivity, has decided to leave the game, and announced his retirement at a Wednesday afternoon news conference.

I liked the Priest. He worked hard and made the Rats look like fools for letting him go to sign with the Chiefs.

Good luck Priest!

I give the guy a lot of credit. He proved the skeptics wrong on two occassions. He went from UDFA ot Pro Bowler and then he came back from an injury that would have retired most guys.

Good job Priest.

Oh man, i'll miss him. even though his numbers are not the greatest he'll always be one of the best to me, he played his heart out every single week.

good luck to him

I wish him well.

It was impressive that he came back and played at all. It is more impressive that he was mature about his decision and is able to literally walk into a new life.

God bless and good luck Priest.

I am glad that he decided not to risk more permanent injury, I would have hated for my final vision of Priest Holmes being him taken off of the field on a stretcher.
