Seth Wickersham talks with Toucher & Rich about Bill Belichick meeting more frequently than prior years with Robert Kraft, and feeling the pressure to trade Jimmy Garoppolo.
David Harris's 11-year run in the NFL has come to an end.
On Friday, the linebacker announced his retirement from the game of football after spending 10 seasons with the Jets and one with the Patriots.
Statement from NFL great David Harris:— Sportstars (@SPORTSTARSNYC) February 23, 2018
"After 11 years of having played the greatest team sport at its highest level, it's now time for me to announce my retirement from the NFL."
It has been a true honor representing David! Go enjoy retirement! #Sportstars #HitMan #ClassAct
The Jets drafted Harris with the 47th pick in the 2007 NFL Draft. In his rookie season, he racked up 5 sacks and 127 total tackles. His breakout rookie season was an clear indication of the solid player he would become over the course of his career.
Although he neither won a Super Bowl, nor made it to a Pro Bowl, the linebacker served as a focal point on a Rex Ryan defense that appeared in two AFC Championships in 2010 and 2011.
When he was released in 2017, the 34-year-old made a career choice to sign with the Patriots to compete for a Super Bowl.
He didn't go out a champion, but a trip to the Super Bowl was a once-in-a-lifetime experience for one of the most underrated linebackers of the past decade.

Admittedly, the audio is poor but the idea is no less intriguing.
Was Odell Beckham Jr. telling Kyrie Irving at NBA All-Star Weekend that he's trying to go to the Patriots? Or to Boston? Or New England?
It's 23 seconds into the video below:

Beckham has had a few Instagram posts about Brady recently, including an exchange of rap lyrics back in December.
Unless there's a trade between the Patriots and Giants, Beckham, 25, the three-time Pro Bowl wide receiver, won't be free to join Kyrie in New England - or was it Boston? - until the four-year deal he signed in 2014 ends after this season. Oh, and as he enters that 2019 season, Tom Brady will be 42.
