Cardinals' running back Emmitt Smith will retire during the offseason, according to ESPN reporters John Clayton and Chris Mortensen. A league source told Mortensen that Smith might make the announcement as soon as Thursday while in Jacksonville for the Super Bowl. Smith finished the 2004 season with 937 rushing yards and nine touchdowns.
It might turn out that an earlier report which indicated that Smith was going to announce his retirement on Tuesday was just a couple days off. That same report also stated that the league's all-time rushing leader intends to join the investment group fronted by Arizona businessman Reggie Fowler, who is attempting to purchase the Vikings. Whether Smith is involved with Fowler's group remains to be seen.
