-- Gannon's Playing Days are Over --

The San Francisco Chronicle reports QB Rich Gannon. Last season's neck fracture means his playing days are over -- doctors have told Gannon this, and he has come to accept the truth. Though Gannon's $8 million salary is a big hit against the 2005 cap, the Raiders, league sources say, are prepared to give the quarterback all the time he needs to call it quits. A failed physical will allow him to collect additional benefits from the NFL. In the meantime, the Raiders, sources say, will take Gannon down to the NFL minimum ($755,000, only $455,00 of which counts against the cap) and will postpone any decision on his future until after June 1, when the cap hit from his bonus acceleration (about $5.4 million) moves to the '06 books.


there's a little clipping. sounds like speculation but it looks like he will retire. He will be remembered as a great raider. He had a great run, too bad the raiders couldn't snatch him from the cheifs sooner.

that sucks. i had a feeling this would probably happen when he first had got injured. he was a force in his prime..and while i was never a huge fan, i did respect him.

As a St. Louis fan, and therefore a KC hater, I loved it year after year when they played Grbac over Gannon and it burned them. Gannon got better with age and was underrated until the last couple years of his career.

Man I hate to see this. I drafted Gannon in his career year and have been a huge fan ever since. It saddens me that he never got a ring before having to call it quits.
