Report: Tight End Likely to Retire After Playoff Loss

One of the oldest New England Patriots is set to walk away from football after last night’s loss to the Tennessee Titans.

39-year-old tight end Benjamin Watson told reporters that this is likely his last football game he will ever play.

“There’s a time when it’s time to move on, especially with my family. Putting them through another move, this was tough for us,” Watson said. “It’s hard to say because I love football. I love what I do. But it’s time to figure out what’s next.”

The Patriots drafted Watson in the first round of the 2004 NFL Draft and won a Super Bowl with the team in his rookie season.

Watson moved on to Cleveland before starting one of two stints with the New Orleans Saints.

He recorded career highs as a Saint in 2015 with 74 catches, 825 yards and six scores before moving on to Baltimore as a free agent in 2016.
