Patriots guard Dan Connolly retires

New England Patriots offensive guard Dan Connolly has decided to retire. He told ESPN it's time.

Connolly went out on top, winning a Super Bowl. He had four concussions and opted to stop playing after getting attention from the Seattle Seahawks and Tampa Bay Buccaneers this offseason. “It’s important to me to leave the game healthy,” Connolly said. “I’m able to be here for my kids and walk away on my own terms. I feel like I got everything I could out of football in playing 10 years, winning a Super Bowl, and playing alongside some truly great players.” Follow me on Twitter: @RavensInsider Aaron Wilson covers the Ravens for The Baltimore Sun
