Brian Waters will consider retirement


Patriots Pro Bowl guard Brian Waters signed a two-year contract before the 2011 season, but he’s not sure he wants to continue playing.

Waters said after the Super Bowl that he will take 2-3 weeks to make a decision about his future, according to Shalise Manza Young of the Boston Globe.

New England would love to have Waters back. He provided veteran leadership and high quality play all year. He arguably outplayed Logan Mankins this year.

Waters turns 35 years old this month. He was playing at such a high level, we suspect he’ll choose to return once the emotion of Sunday night’s loss subsides a little.

    We missed him in KC this year. Great move Pioli letting him go. Maybe he purposely let him go to help the Pats?

    After all the holding he got away with on JPP last night, he should.

    He should be an OL coach, and would be a good one.

    He likely DID outplay Mankins. KC should have never let him go.

    The only chiefs that play in the Super Bowl are ex chiefs!

    He absolutely outplayed Mankins. Mankins had a down year for sure.

    He’s the man. If you all only knew the great things he does each year for people that he refuses to let the media report…….
    Great guy that tries to help all rookies who want to learn how to be a professional athlete. from finnce to conduct.
