Duane Starks Is Retiring

Former Baltimore Ravens starting cornerback Duane Starks, who last played for the Oakland Raiders prior to being cut last year, is officially retiring from the NFL. According to the Miami Herald and Warren Sapp’s Twitter account, Starks is holding a retirement roast and charity event tonight in Miami. Besides Sapp, Edgerrin James and Daunte Culpepper, actors Jamie Foxx and Morris Chestnut are scheduled to attend. Starks, 34, started for the Ravens during their Super Bowl XXXV victory over the New York Giants, returning an interception for a touchdown in that game. Drafted with the 10th overall pick out of the University of Miami by Baltimore in 1998, Starks later played for the New England Patriots, Arizona Cardinals and the Raiders. Starks intercepted 25 career passes and recorded 206 career tackles and 33 pass deflections in 10 NFL seasons.
