Drew Bledsoe retires

by Dan Bilicki In: Football

Dallas Cowboys back up quarterback Drew Bledsoe retired yesterday after playing 14 seasons in the NFL; he made the Pro Bowl in four of them. Bledsoe was drafted by the New England Patriots in 1993 with the first overall pick and led the Pats to the Super Bowl in 1996 but lost to the Green Bay Packers. Sadly, Bledsoe may be best remembered as the guy who lost his job to future Hall of Famer Tom Brady in New England. He also was passed over for Tony Romo in Dallas this season after delivering sub-par performances. Now that he’s retired, the possibility of erecting a statue of Bledsoe could come to fruition as Drew could stand out side of a stadium painted in bronze and pretend he’s in an NFL backfield.
