How ironic that I am now sitting here writing a retirement list, knowing full well that Brett Favre is indeed due to return for the Minnesota Vikings this season?
Have you ever known somebody who just couldn't quit? Whether it be an annoying guy at work that can't seem to tell a funny joke, or an out of touch kid that was terrible at playing basketball, but would never give up no matter what until the ball went through for a swish.
I'm sure we've all been there, right?

However, now it's time to shine a light on these players. Some are big time names, while others are players that we have more or less forgotten about in the past five years.
So let's get to it. Here's a look at the top 15 NFL players who should retire before they embarrass. And on a side note, yes, Brett Favre is mentioned.
