The Redskins’ playoff loss to the Seahawks may have been the final game of linebacker London Fletcher’s career.
“I’ll take some time to let the emotions of the season kind of get away, refresh a little bit and then sit down with my family and make the decision from there as far as whether I’ll continue to play or not,” Fletcher said after the game, via the Washington Post.
Redskins linebacker Lorenzo Alexander said after the game that he hoped Fletcher would keep going but sensed they might have been playing together for the last time.
“You could tell he was really sad, upset,” Alexander said. “We’re real close so it was real heartfelt for me, that this run that we had was kind of second to a Super Bowl win with what this team was able to do with him leading it. With that, is he coming back? Is he not? It’s that kind of sentiment, because you get close to guys and you never want to see them go away because that’s what you really miss.”
The 37-year-old Fletcher is a three-time Pro Bowler who has never missed a game in his 15-year career.
