Open Mic: Retired Too Early

Mike DiMauro@miked31784Senior Writer IJuly 26, 2008

I did part one of the article earlier this week on the athletes who should retire. Now, I am doing part two, which includes a list of those who retired too early (or were still in their prime):

  • Barry Sanders
  • Brett Favre (yes, he is on this list also)
  • Tara Lipinski
  • Rusty Wallace
  • Michael Jordan (1993)
  • Tiki Barber (retired the year before the team won the Superbowl)
  • Joe Gibbs (1992)

When I think of more, I will add them. Look for a separate article about those who should of retired earlier.
