Sorry, all you New York Giants fans. The only way Michael Strahan will be returning to the Meadowlands is to work in the broadcast booth.
Jay Glazer of FOX SPORTS reports that the recently retired lineman will not be coming out of retirement to suit up for the G-Men one more time.
But Michael decided it’s best that he keep his escape from East Rutherford final:
“This has been one of the toughest nights of my life,” Strahan said from Greece. “But after long deliberation and throwing around a million scenarios in my head for the past day, I think it’s just best if I stay retired.
“I have gone back and forth on this because as a player you’ll always want to play, you’ll never lose that urge to be out there. But I could only do this if I could commit 100 percent, physically, mentally, emotionally and I can’t do that. I’ve tried to convince myself and my body to give it one more year, but in the end I just don’t think I could turn it on like I need to again.”
Besides, New York already has a gridiron gladiator who doesn’t know when to call it quits.
