    Apologies if already posted but I found this quote from Rodney the most telling in attempting to crystallize when/why pro-athletes call it quits. FROM MMQB:

    "He told former teammate Rodney Harrison recently he was having trouble with his legs, and if he lost the ability to make plays sideline-to-sideline and in coverage, he had no chance to beat out the bevy of young linebackers Belichick had brought in over the past three or four years. "

    Sounds like BB and Tedy both knew what the right thing was. He didn't want to be Willie Mays circa 1972..
