Ty Law not ready to give up on playing career just yet

Ty Law took a spin on the Bristol merry-go-round Saturday, which is often a precursor for an ex-Boston player to get a job at ESPN.

The 15-year veteran acknowledges that his playing career could be over, but isn’t giving up just yet.  According to Mike Reiss, Law said he plans to train over the next month to see if he has one final season left in his body.

Law played seven games for the Broncos last year after suiting up for seven the year before in New York for the Jets.

If Law retires, we can start the five-year clock until he is considered by the Hall of Fame. We think he has a solid chance of eventually getting in.  He certainly wouldn’t be a first ballot Hall of Famer, but Law could benefit from the relative lack of options from the New England championship runs.

    Nice cut n paste Rosenthal !!!
    You rewrote Mike Reiss’s entire article except with replacing what he wrote about Law being eligible for the Pats HOF and replacing it with Canton which is highly unlikely to happen since he is 22nd in career INT’s.
    Do you really get paid for what you post ??

    dolphinfiegl99, are you retarded? Miami? Ty Law is a has-been corner, and Miami is stacked, with plenty of young talented guys, at the corner back position.

    I was thinking that too…..but have you ever noticed who he is TIED for 22nd with?
    I don’t see him being a HOFer either though. Aside from his one stick-it-to-them season in New York, he has been completely irrelevant since leaving New England, and in his final holdout year there.
    He was great in his prime, but I just don’t think he did enough to make it.

    Too much “it’s all about me” to be considered for the HOF. As a Patriots fan I think the guy was great when he played for my team. And he still had skills when he left but being represented by the Poston brothers and them filling his head head with “Ty, your the man” cost him….
    Ty, take your rings, the money you’ve made, and go into your next career. It’s over.

    Law a HOF’er?
    Ehh…that’s borderline, IMO. He had a real good stretch of years, just not sure he’ll end up in Canton. There’s only 21 DB’s in Canton, total. Very tough position to crack. Plus, there’s plenty of other DB’s who should at least merit consideration before Law, I think (Aeneas Williams, Steve Atwater, maybe Carnell Lake, Tim McDonald, Eric Allen)
    Nothing wrong with your career being considered “Very Good”, though.

    Tim…you are correct about Law being a has been [ who needs to lose wejght]….BUT…no way in hell that Miami is stacked @ corner or safety..not even in top 1/2 of NFL.

    The Ravens would gladly sign him. We need desperate help at corner until Washington and Webb get healthy.

    tim- at this point in his career, law’s a safety. ASS

  12. TheSleepness says: Jun 6, 2010 12:52 AM

    ty law is absolutely a hall-of-famer.

  13. august says: Jun 6, 2010 7:48 AM

    superbowls and extasy….ty law is the man!

    Ty had a few good years but hardly a HOF’er. Should have retired years ago. I guess he is getting paid though because he is certainly eating his share these days.
    Even in NE he had more than his share of bad years. NE fans tend to overlook those because of the hard hits, INT’s and great games he had. I always thought he was a “me-first and nobody-else-second type of guy”. Sorry never was a big Ty Law fan, never will be. Just hope he can feed his family.

    @ WhoDey_Man: No, Ty Law is not a safety. You don’t just become one one day once you reach a certain age.
    @ MistrezzRachael: Go ahead, give all of us your enlightening explanation on why you thought I said one word about the Dolphins safety position, or that the Dolphins starting ROOKIE corners, last year, were the “top 1/2 of NFL.” But before you do all that, please write back to us in English, because you type like you’re illiterate.

    Tim is right, according to profootballfocus.com, their overall play in 2009, the website ranked Will Allen 26th, Vontae Davis 27th, and Sean Smith 32nd among 107 corners.
