BREAKING: Chad Pennington Tells Radio Station He is Officially Retiring


It looks like Chad Pennington is calling it a career.

Chad has told station 93.7 in West Virginia in an interview that he is officially calling it quits, and retiring from the NFL.

Pennington played most of his career for the Jets, before playing his final 3 years (2008-2010) with Miami. His career accomplishments include 2 Comeback Player of the Year Awards, and finishing 2002 with the NFL leading passer rating of 104.2. Although he didn’t have a big arm, he was best known for his accuracy, always near the top in completion percentage.

His career unfortunately will be marred by too many arm injuries that robbed him of his abilities. A great guy, and a real Jet in every way. Will talk more about Chad’s time with the Jets later on.
