Eagles cornerback Ellis Hobbs sought to clear up conflicting reports about his possible retirement in a television appearance Monday.
In short, he’s leaning towards retirement because of his second neck surgery, but reserves the right to change his mind.
“I have no regrets,” Hobbs told Derrick Gunn of Comcast Sports Philadelphia. “I have nothing [else] to look forward to in this game. The money — whatever. I can make money somewhere else. The game itself –- I can watch it now. I’ve enjoyed it just as much watching it as I did playing it.
“Is it really worth it, the game itself?,” Hobbs said. “You’re financially OK. You have your health now. There are so many things you can look forward to at the age of 27.”
It sounds like Hobbs could feel differently after some rehab. For now, he plans to hang up his cleats.
“We throw nothing out the window and we hold all options available,” he said.
