Owings Mills, MD (Sports Network) – Former MVP quarterback Steve McNair announced his retirement from the NFL Thursday, making it official at an afternoon press conference.
McNair spent his final two seasons with the Baltimore Ravens after playing his first 11 years with the Tennessee Titans franchise. He was a four-time Pro Bowl selection and the league’s co-MVP, sharing honors with Peyton Manning, in 2003.
“It’s been a long road,” McNair began. “Thirteen years from Houston to Memphis to Nashville, now to Baltimore. But I’ve been fortunate to surround myself with great people, great coaches, great teammates, great family. My career speaks for itself. I enjoyed it. I can look back on it, reflect back on it, and I wouldn’t change a thing. I played the game with a lot of passion, I played the game with a lot of heart, and it showed over my 13 years.”
