Chris Samuels about to Retire

I just heard Chris Samuels is going to retire. Can anyone confirm what is being said locally.

If so, we are really going to need some help with bringing in good talent for the our O-Line. Lets just hope we get Chris Samuels type talent.

Samuels definitely will be on our 100th anniversary team of all-time Redskin greats. A True Redskin indeed.

Re: Chris Samuels about to Retire

Hadn't heard anything official. Just that it is being "strongly encouraged" by some medical professionals

Re: Chris Samuels about to Retire

That's really a shame, Chris has been an anchor for this team for years. He will be missed greatly. I'm glad he's getting out before any sort of life threatening injury takes place. Good luck in the future!

Damn that sucks. Can't blame the guy for putting health first though.

Re: Chris Samuels about to Retire

I thought he would as I heard the neck injury was potentially....serious. He WILL be missed on and off the field. It will help expedite the...mandatory overhaul of the O-line.

Heard that too today. Wish it was not true but it sounds like it may be. He has been a True Redskin.

Re: Chris Samuels about to Retire

I think I can confirm, but not 100% sure and not sure when the retirement would actually happen. Like would he IR the rest of the season and then retire in the offseason? I don't know.

Re: Chris Samuels about to Retire

Well if we pull a Buffalo and don't do anything to replace him we'll see just how easy it is to take for granted a Pro Bowl left tackle anchoring your line for 10 straight years. Sucks that it came down to this but I'm glad he's getting out now because I'm sure he's already got health problems that will be bothering him for a long time. I hope he doesn't end up as another case where you see those sad stories about linemen who have so many medical bills but are living in poverty because the NFL refuses to pay them for all the injuries they accumulated while playing in the NFL.

Thank you for being the rock of our line for the last ten years, here's to hoping you still have a bright future ahead in retirement CS.

And yes obviously this will expedite the overhaul of our line. So far it's looking like LT, RG, and RT will end up being priority moves in the offseason. Heyer is the only NFL quality backup I see on our roster at tackle, I think Rinehart can be a capable backup but I don't see him starting again mainly because there's this whole issue of him claiming he's healthy enough to play but the coaching staff saying his shoulder is keeping him out. There's something fishy about that.

Shooooooot. Does anyone have a link? This is just going to make it that much harder to rebuild our O-line. How is this going to impact our cap? Does he get his guaranteed money still?

Re: Chris Samuels about to Retire

I just heard this. He was a Redskin through and through! I only wish he could have reached the SB in his stellar career.

Re: Chris Samuels about to Retire

The Redskins should have had somebody ready to move in at LT when Chris first started hurting. But they've always tried to put together an offensive line by patching it with older players, usually that nobody else wants.
