Forty-Niners Linebacker Patrick Willis To Retire
Patrick Willis will reportedly announce his
retirement after eight seasons with the San Francisco 49ers.
Yahoo! Sports and NFL.com reported the news, saying the seven-time
Pro Bowl linebacker will make it official on Tuesday.
The 30-year-old veteran played just six games last season because
of a toe injury that eventually required surgery. He registered 34
tackles with an interception last season.
Willis was a first-round pick in the 2007 NFL Draft and recorded
more than 100 tackles in six of his first seven seasons. The Ole
Miss product also had 20 1/2 sacks with eight interceptions.
