Gannon retiring

Postby Pudge » Sat Feb 26, 2005 2:52 pm

ESPN wrote:The Oakland Raiders made the first step in helping their cap situation by restructuring the contract of quarterback Rich Gannon, taking his $8 million salary to the NFL minimum.

Gannon probably will retire this summer because of neck problems. By helping the Raiders, he can stay on the active roster until June and then be released. His new base salary will be $765,000, saving the Raiders $7.35 million.


So it seems like Gannon won't be an option for the backup QB this year.
