ASHBURN, Va. -- The linebacker with 100 per cent attendance says theres a 99 per cent chance hes done. Washington Redskins captain London Fletcher, who has never missed a game in 16 NFL seasons, announced Wednesday that he plans to retire at the end of the year, the conclusion of a remarkable career for the undersized, undrafted player from a Division III school. "I felt like I accomplished everything I can accomplish in the National Football League from a players standpoint," Fletcher said. "Obviously everybody wants to go out like Ray Lewis with the Super Bowl parade ... but it wasnt in the cards for me." Fletcher left a tiny opening that he could return, but age has finally started to catch up with the player who always seemed ageless. Hes 38, and his tackles and playing time have declined this season. Hes set to be a free agent, and hes the leader of a struggling defence that is one of many reasons the Redskins (3-11) have clinched their fifth last-place finish in six years. "Im about 99 per cent certain that this will be my last season," Fletcher said. "Ive got to leave at least one per cent in case I change my mind, but its really just about having another conversation with my wife. ... I want to put on a nice suit when I go to that 100 per cent." Fletcher, listed at 5-foot-10, has answered the call for all 254 regular season games since joining the St. Louis Rams out of John Carroll in 1998, the longest consecutive games streak for a defensive player since the 1970 merger and fourth all-time behind Jeff Feagles (352), Brett Favre (299) and Jim Marshall (282). Hes started 213 straight games -- the longest such run by a linebacker in NFL history -- over four seasons with the Rams, five with the Buffalo Bills and seven with the Redskins. He said hes thought about retirement for four or five years, but he had previously said would wait until the calm of the off-season to decide for good rather than announcing it in-season while emotions are strong. He said Wednesday he changed his mind because he wanted a chance to say goodbye to the fans at Sundays home finale against the Dallas Cowboys. Fletcher once called himself the "Susan Lucci of the NFL" because he was always getting snubbed at Pro Bowl time, but the drought ended when was selected for the all-star game for four consecutive seasons starting in 2009. He was second-team All-Pro in 2011 and 2012, has played in two Super Bowls and is the only player since sacks became an official stat in 1982 to have 30 sacks, 20 interceptions and 20 forced fumbles. Asked if hes Hall of Fame worthy, he laughed and said there will "definitely" be room for debate when hes compared to others who have been enshrined. "I think hes definitely a Hall of Fame calibre player," coach Mike Shanahan said. "His work speaks for itself." Fletcher said he can still "go out and make plays" despite his age and is leaving in part to spend more time a family that includes three young children. He said he hopes to leave a legacy of helping develop teammate Perry Riley, but Fletchers overwhelming accomplishment is that he always found a way to play, no matter how badly he was limping from some injury after the previous game. "I dont know how he does it," linebacker Brian Orakpo said. "Any time Im feeling bad or I dont want to practice or Im sore, and I look at this guy and hes still going -- you cant complain. Its impossible to go out there and complain because this guys out there doing it and he has 10-plus years on me." Fletcher said the streak was his way of not letting his teammates down. "I always wanted to be able to be there for them and know that, Hey, they can count on me," Fletcher said. "And even prove doubters wrong when theres a little nick or bump and they think, Hey, this is going to be the end of the streak or whatever the case may be -- to be able to say: You know what? Im tough enough to get through this." Notes: Fletcher also gave a passionate endorsement for Shanahan to return. "I think you should extend him, as crazy as that may sound," Fletcher said. ... Fletchers advice to embattled quarterback Robert Griffin III, who has been benched for the rest of the season: "This is a time for him to exhale, take a step back." Griffins rambling response: "I agree with him. And I did take that advice because for some people it can push you over the edge and really frustrate you, so for me I just gotta do what Fletch told me and exhale, just let it all go because you have to let the people that know you defend you. And you cant try to defend yourself or your family in these situations. Its unfortunate and people wont understand that. But people that know me, know my parents, know my family, know what goes on around here, they have to defend me." Air Max Plus Canada Online . Prado stuck his glove down with Colorados Charlie Blackmon sliding into the bag, and quickly jumped back in pain after applying the tag.

Air Max Plus Cheap Sale . PETERSBURG, Fla. Cheap Air Max Plus . -- Slugger Jose Abreu, All-Star left-hander Chris Sale and closer Matt Lindstrom are on the disabled list.GREEN BAY, Wis. - Dez Bryant stood near the sideline with a look of disbelief, hands raised to his head.The 31-yard catch to the 1 in the waning minutes of the fourth quarter was reversed and that helped knock the Dallas Cowboys out of playoffs.DeMarco Murray ran for 123 yards on 25 carries and an efficient Tony Romo threw two touchdown passes, but the Cowboys squandered an eight-point lead in the third quarter to fall 26-21 on Sunday to the Green Bay Packers. It was the first loss on the road this season for Dallas after going 8-0 in the regular season.Bryant finished with three catches for 38 yards.The 31-yard catch overturned on video replay upset Bryant the most.Look, Ill tell you this, Ive never seen that a day in my life. I want to know why it wasnt a catch, said an emotional Bryant, his voice sounding as if it was going to crack a couple of times.On fourth-and-2 from the Packers 32 with 4:42 left and the Packers leading 26-21, Romo threw a deep pass left. Cornerback Sam Shields had solid coverage. The 6-foot-2 Bryant jumped high and came down at the 1.Coach Mike McCarthy saw otherwise and threw a challenge flag. Fans at Lambeau Field roared as giant video boards showed the replay.Some people probably think throwing the red flag is a lot of fun. Its not all its cut out to be, I can tell you that, McCarthy said. But that was such an impactful play, you have to challenge that.Replays showed that Bryant bobbled the ball as he rolled into the end zone, with part of it touching the field. After reviewing the play, officials overturned the call, saying Bryant didnt maintain control all the way to the ground.The rule states:If a player goes to the ground in the act of catching a pass (with or without contact by an opponent), he must maintain control of the ball throughout the process of contacting the ground, whether in the field of play or the end zone. If he loses control of the ball, and the ball touches the ground before he regains control, the pass is incomplete. If he regains control prior to the ball touching the ground, the pass is complete.Bryant thought otherwise.Cmon, man. Im just saying, I think it was a catch. Obviously, they didnt think it was a catch, (the refereess) took it away, Bryant said.dddddddddddd So obviously it was because of them.Hours after the game, Bryant tweeted: as I went to the ground I rolled over and I tipped the ball to gain better control. We lost and I accept it but please change that rule.The call overshadowed other glaring problems for the Cowboys down the stretch — third-down conversions by the Packers in the fourth quarter.Packers rookie Davante Adams broke free for a 26-yard gain on third-and-3 to the Dallas 34 with 2:24 left. Cornerback Sterling Moore missed a tackle after trying to pull the ball away.With 1:43 left, Randall Cobb caught a 12-yard pass that was initially tipped on third-and-11 from the 35 for another first down.When it gets cold here and this weather gets different, youve got to put your body on people and arm tackles dont work, cornerback Orlando Scandrick said. Me personally, I dont think we did a great job of tackling. Ultimately, you cant pinpoint one thing.Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers was slowed by a left calf injury. But he displayed his trademark accuracy in darting a 13-yard touchdown pass to tight end Richard Rodgers with 9:10 left to put the Packers up for good.While almost every Cowboys fan will remember this game for the reversed call, coach Jason Garrett said the loss didnt come down to officiating.We had 60 minutes, Garrett said. That play was big in the game, but there were plenty of other plays in the ballgame an unfortunately we didnt do things necessary to win the ballgame in the end.Romo finished 15 of 19 for 191 yards. The Packers sacked him four times. Romo also was whipped around to the ground by safety Micah Hyde after throwing away a pass. He gave the Cowboys a brief scare when he got up limping, favouring his left leg.Romo turned out to be fine and returned to the game.But the return to his home state — Romo grew up in Burlington in southeastern Wisconsin — didnt go as well as he would have hoped.This is really, seriously one of the more disappointing times Ive had on a personal basis, owner Jerry Jones said. It was quite a challenge, it was quite game our team played, we just fell short.___AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and www.twitter.com/AP_NFL China NFL Jerseys Cheap Nike NFL Jerseys NFL Jerseys Cheap Wholesale NFL Jerseys Cheap Basketball Jerseys Online Stitched Hockey Jerseys Wholesale Baseball Jerseys Football Jerseys Outlet College Jerseys For Sale Cheap MLB Jerseys Wholesale Soccer Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys For Sale Wholesale NFL Jerseys ' ' '
