Re: Kory Lichtensteiger Retires

Any idea why he decided to hang it up? Any details from the local DC media? It is nice he gave us more cap space, but it means we have to draft an offensive linemen or acquire a FA on the cheap end.

KL saved his money, his body is beat up, and there is not a big demand for a back-up center

Probably because he's 31 and has been pretty banged up as of late. He had a good career, time to wrap it up.

He was going to be cut, 100%, and he knew it. He also knew he would command a small salary on the open market once there. I am sure that factored.

Read his quote: when I approached Bruce and Scot with my thoughts after the season they were very graceful in permitting me to retire a Redskin.

Translation: they were going to cut him and all of them knew it. They agreed to hang onto him until he filed retirement paperwork.

Everybody knew it was over, the Redskins, Kory, and the league. Life goes on. He's easily replaceable.

Good for him. He certainly got the most out of his ability.
