Injuries were always a thing with him, he was just a warrior. I remember reports during his rookie year where dude was having to take Vicodin at halftime to be able to play. And he did.

If it weren't for consistent nagging injuries his career would have been even better.

But he never complained or made it clear just how much he's been affected by them. Particularly the last couple years.

You could say that about a lot of players.

Durability plays a part in greatness and breaking down physically at an earlier rate/age should be counted against them. CJ didn't take any more punishment than Moss, Owens, or Rod Smith, but those guys were able to be effective for much longer time.

Perfect fit for the Pats. Any way they can get him for 1 season?

Come get your ring, Megatron.

He's not retiring because he's no longer effective.

Great player. Sad to see him go, the league will miss his talent.
