Steve Smith Sr. Officially Files Retirement Letter With NFL

Posted Jan 6, 2017

In true Steve Smith fashion, the receiver wrote to NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell to say 'I'll no longer be antagonizing defensive backs.'


Steve Smith Sr. is officially retired.

The wide receiver made it clear after Sunday’s season finale against the Cincinnati Bengals that his 16-year career was over, and that became official Friday morning when he sent a letter to NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell.

And true to form, Smith even trash talked defensive backs in the formal letter.

Smith built a Hall of Fame-caliber resume over the course of his career, and finished with 1,031 catches (12th all-time NFL ranking) for 14,731 receiving yards (seventh all-time) and 89 total touchdowns.

“I enjoyed it, but it’s over and done. I know it’s my time,” Smith said last week. “People tell me I should play another year and I probably could. But what I’d lose, I’m not willing to risk.”
