Colts Robert Mathis Announces He'll Retire After Sunday's Game

Colts Robert Mathis Announces He'll Retire After Sunday's Game

"I've always said, "If we could have 11 Robert Mathis" on both sides of the ball we would never lose a game'".

"I just wanted to make the team in 2003, just wanted to make the team, special teams and, basically, just wanted to see if I could play, play football with these guys, coming from a small, black college - Alabama A&M, the Hill", Mathis said. "I'm a Colt, I'm a blue-blood".

Mathis was named to five Pro Bowls, and was part of the Colts' Super Bowl-winning team in 2006. Mathis is the Colts' all-time leader in sacks with 122, and he's the NFL's all-time leader in strip-sacks with 46 (he's recorded 51 forced fumbles total). Mathis appealed, stating it was for fertility purposes, but would miss a year that would have been critical to his Hall of Fame statistics. "The game's been good to me". It will be weird for Colts fans next season, when Mathis isn't on the field anymore. "Stomp with the big dogs basically". He's recorded five double-digit sack seasons (and eight with at least 9.5 sacks), made six Pro Bowls, and was a first-team All-Pro in 2013 when he led the league in sacks with 19.5 (the Colts' single-season record). He came back to register seven sacks in 2015.

Jansen agrees to $80M, 5-year deal with Dodgers
Turner's new contract means that he'll re-join Kenley Jansen and Rich Hill as members of the Dodgers for at least the near future. He also registered a major-league-leading 0.67 WHIP with 9.45 strikeout-to-walk ratio which was the best in the National League.


Announcing his retirement on Friday, Mathis explained the emotional decision.

Mathis' following season, in 2014, was marred by a four-game performance-enhancing drug suspension, which preceded his suffering a season-ending ruptured Achilles during an offseason workout.

"He's a great player, a great teammate, a great man", Indianapolis coach Chuck Pagano said. When he plays this Sunday, he'll tie Justin Snow for the seventh-most games with the Colts in franchise history (with 192).
