NFL Retirement Grades

Jared Allen – 10 out of 10 Favres retirement rating

I don’t think I’d started my blog when Allen announced his retirement. Riding off into the sunset is a great way to go out. Truly deserving of a 10 out of 10 Favres rating. I was never a huge fan, but he was a great player until Chicago signed him.

Peyton Manning – 4 out of 10 Favres

With camp Manning deciding that they haven’t made a decision I’m bumping this up to 4 out of 10 Favres. He’ll get 10 out of 10 if he doesn’t retire. Hopefully he’s drinking a lot of beer.

Marshawn Lynch – 5 out of 10 Favres

I know it didn’t happen this week, and it was fairly classy. 5 out of 10 Favres. Everyone saw it coming.

Justin Tuck – 2 out of 10 Favres

Good player, but not very dominant of late. He probably waited one season too long.

Heath Miller – 4 out of 10 Favres

Decent tight end and surprising until you see that he was approaching his mid thirties.

Jerod Mayo – 6 out of 10 Favres

Surprising even if his last few seasons have been quite injury plagued. Patriots are losing a good player.

Jon Beason – 1 Out of 10 Favres

I can’t remember the last time he was healthy. I’d certainly rather not play by choice than by injury.

Check back for more retirement, tag, and free agency grades in the coming weeks.
