All Tennessee Titans are not created equal. Every mention of retirement won’t stir up feelings of nostalgia and good times, but when someone like Jurrell Casey says he’s hanging up the cleats, that’s definitely worth a mention.

Talk about 53-man rosters and practice squad prospects are on hold for a little while. Today is Casey’s day as he formally announced his retirement from the National Football League

He’s charged with erasing the nightmare of watching Jadeveon Clowney suit up and rock those two familiar shades of blue, but if Weaver can be half the player that Casey was, Tennessee might have something.

Today is about Jurrell Casey though. He rides off into the sunset. Everyone wishes him the best. We’d like to thank him for some really great memories. We’d like to wish him luck in whatever venture he undertakes as he prepares for another chapter of life.
