Emmitt Smith denies retirement reports

NFL.com wire reports

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (Feb. 1, 2005) -- Emmitt Smith denied a report Feb. 1 that he will retire later in the week.

ESPN.com, citing unidentified "confidants" of the star running back, reported that Smith will retire Feb. 3 in Jacksonville, site of this year's Super Bowl. Smith spent the last two seasons with Arizona after 13 years with Dallas.

Smith, 35, denied the report in comments to The Dallas Morning News.

"Did you see my year last year? Do you think I'm ready to retire?" Smith said in a report on the newspaper's Web site Tuesday.

Smith rushed for 937 yards and nine touchdowns this season. He has 18,355 yards overall and 164 TDs. He was the league's most valuable player in 1993.

He said on Jan. 31 that he wanted to retire as a member of the Cowboys, the team with which he won three Super Bowls.

Neither the Cardinals nor Cowboys had any announcements planned regarding Smith.

Asked about Smith possibly retiring, former teammate Troy Aikman said: "I hate to speculate on it. At some point it will end, maybe this year or the next. Emmitt's had a terrific career. I'm sure the last two years have been difficult for Emmitt in Arizona.

"One thing in this game, when you play on a team that has been together for as long as we were in Dallas, and then you lose guys, it takes a toll."

Smith was lauded by several players in this year's Super Bowl as a role model, a man who conducted himself the right way on and off the field.

"It would be a great loss for the league," New England running back Corey Dillon said. "I'm going to miss him. I looked up to him, watching him win Super Bowls."

Added Patriots linebacker Ted Johnson: "He's such a low-key, classy individual. And what he's been able to achieve hasn't been given just due. He's such an ambassador of the game. Football's been good to him, and I hope he reciprocates it by staying close to the game. I hope he doesn't completely walk away; I hope he doesn't fade away."

Maybe he's going to announce that he's retiring AFTER this season.

ESPN messed this one up, and they are messing up the Lakers/Rudy Three resigning story as well.

BSPN is really, really bad with thier "sources."

From the "go/no-go" buzz surrounding Emmitt, this sounds like he's trying to keep his negotiations options open.

#!%@* you Troy!!!

Emmitt went 10-22 during his two years in Arizona, for a 32% winning percentage. The three years prior to comming to AZ, Emmitt went 15-33 for a 32% winning percentage. I think he had time to get used to losing prior to arriving here.

Emmitt hasn't been on a winning team since 1998, when oddley enough, we beat him in the playoffs.

Go Cards!!!
