Retirement a "toss-up" for Jason Ferguson

Miami Dolphins nose tackle Jason Ferguson says he hasn’t yet decided whether he’ll return for a 2010 season during which he’ll turn 36 years old.

Ferguson told Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald that it’s a “toss-up” whether or not he’ll play again. Ferguson will be an unrestricted free agent, but given his age and the quadriceps injury that landed him on injured reserve in November, he wouldn’t likely have many suitors.

Ferguson says he doesn’t want his decision-making process to restrict the Dolphins’ off-season plans.

“I don’t want to hold them up,” he said.

Ferguson played from 1997 to 2004 for the Jets, from 2005 to 2007 with the Cowboys and 2008 and 2009 with the Dolphins.

    There are alot of other players that can easily replace a 36 year old coming off IR….retire dude.

    i think the dolphins should re-sign him if he wants to play and sign him to a 2 year deal and then draft his future replacement, but if he wants to retire, let him, he had a good career.

    I wouldn’t be surprised to see the Dolphins go after Wilfork, especially considering all of the money they’ll be freeing considering next year they’ll likely be without: Joey Porter, Jason Taylor, Noodle-arm, and possibly Ronnie Brown unless they get a new deal done with him.

    Ronnie becomes an unrestricted free agent only if the CBA gets signed

    dont forget about Gibril Wilson, he needs to go since its obvious he is not a true FS and we clearly have 2 above avg SS (Yeremiah)

    I’d love to get Wilfork here but he’ll be tagged & the patsies will keep him!!!

    Jason Ferguson is probably the most underrated nose tackle in NFL history. The difference in yards per carry when Jason is in the game (or on the team), compared to when he is out is between a half and a full yard per carry.
    A tremendous player who will be missed if he does decide to hang ‘em up…
