Hot off the Wire news, rumors and tips

Although he has yet to speak for himself, Curt Sylvester now quotes a source close to RB Barry Sanders in the Detroit Free Press, as saying Barry is seriously considering the retirement option right now. "I don't think he's so much tired of the game as just tired," said the source, who declined to be identified. "Ten years and a lot of losing." Contrary to comments by Barry's dad, this source says if he retires it will have nothing to do with coach Bobby Ross' plans for the offense nor will it be based on Barry's chance to become the NFL's leading all-time rusher. "The only record he cares about is, are we going to play in Atlanta (in the Super Bowl) next year? That's his deal. Everything else doesn't motivate him." The article said to look for a decision in July.
