    Can't post link from phone but from his offical Facebook page there was a long goodbye Chicago post thanking the fans.

    He had an amazing career here and would love to see him break the record here, but the game changed away from his abilities and he has lost a step. Thank you 23 for the memories !!

    They can't "release" him, but I assume he may know they are letting him walk away.

    I know people think he'll go to Tampa but if he's serious about adding to his greatness and more HOF consideration he should ally himself w/Toub down in K.C.

    He knew it was coming a long time ago and so did we. He was the greatest returner of all time until he eventually lost his ludicrous speed.

    Not a shocker, if you ask me. He will be counted among the greats of this team, but the writing was on the wall.

    I just mentioned this on the other thread talking about him. I just read it also. No surprise, not really sad but I do wish he could have gotten the record here.

    Its not the speed. It was the rule changes, plus losing many of the special teamers (blockers) and finally losing Toub.

    Sad to see, wish he would have broken the record here...but it's tough to commit money to a guy who just returns kicks and nothing else. I don't think you'll see him in Tampa, they have enough guys who can return kicks and do other things as well.
