I think it's stupid that players retire as a part of a team. Some of these guys have been part of 6-7 teams before they are done, and never spent a majority of it anywhere (obviously not the case here). What if you spent exactly 5 years in SF, and 5 in NE? Say you won a SB in both cities? Consider you were drafted by the Rams, and traded before you played a game? Which is the team you retire with? Just retire, as you, not "Jerry Rice, 49er". Just being Jerry Rice is more than sufficient.
