Steve Smith Sr. was ‘89 percent sure’ of his retirement at his last press conference. When asked about the other 11 percent he told a reporter to let it go, he wanted a nice press conference.
After today, we see why he said not to ask about the latter; Steve released his letter of retirement to NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell today. Clearly though, it wasn’t without one final Agent 89 remark:
It's official my letter to the @NFL #agent89 out ✌#stevesmithsr #RavensFlock #SSmithWPMOYchallenge pic.twitter.com/CMW2PXDPkd— Steve Smith Sr (@89SteveSmith) January 6, 2017
“This is to notify you that as of today I, Steve Smith Sr., will no longer be antagonizing defensive backs. I am retiring from the National Football League.”
Going to miss this man; even when retiring he’s still thinking of bullying players on the gridiron.
Good luck to Steve Smith Sr., on his post-football endeavors. Cannot wait for this man to wear the gold jacket he’s earned.
