According to the crawl along the bottom of CSN during Daily News Live on Monday evening, Eagles corner Ellis Hobbs is set to retire.
Hobbs, who rehabbed furiously from neck surgery last season, suffered another devastating injury against the Giants two weeks ago.
Hobbs came to Philly from New England for a couple of fifth round picks during the 2009 NFL Draft. He was slated to replace Sheldon Brown as the starting corner and was handed the job upon Brown’s departure last summer.
Ironically, the Patriots traded him because he wanted more money. Now, we can see why all athletes need to get the most they can. You never know when your career will be over.
The man who started opposite Asante Samuel during the Patriots undefeated regular season in 2007 played just 16 games in two years for the Eagles and recorded just one pick and 27 tackles.
He made more of an impact as a return man, especially in 2009.
