Drew Bledsoe Retires After 14 Seasons [David Stefanini]

We knew it would come to this. There was no way Bledsoe was going to take a back seat and watch the Tony Romo era unfold in Dallas. Bledsoe has been a top QB in this league for the better part of the last decade. He lead the Patriots to the Super Bowl and showed what kind of person all athletes should be when he lost his starting job twice; once to Tom Brady and finally to Tony Romo.
Not once did you hear in the media about Bledsoe coming out and demanding more playing time, or throwing his teammates under the bus. He has been a true competitor and has been completely respectable to the game of football.
The NFL needs more players like him, and they will truly miss him when he is not around anymore.
