Raiders | Gannon to Make Retirement Official Soon?

Updating previous reports, Sid Hartman, reports for the Minneapolis Star-Tribune, Oakland Raiders QB Rich Gannon is close to making his retirement from the NFL official. "I have that neck injury and it's not going to be wise for me not to play any more football," he said Sunday, May 15. "I am flying out to California [today] to see the doctor who has treated me for the injury." "I owe a lot to Al Davis of the Raiders for giving me the opportunity he did," Gannon said. "I hope to continue to do some work for the Raiders. I also have been talking to some of the networks about doing some work on the NFL telecasts."
