EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. - Seven-time Pro Bowl defensive end Michael Strahan retired Monday after a 15-year NFL career with the New York Giants that was capped by a Super Bowl title four months ago.

Strahan is walking away from a $4 million salary for the final year of his contract. He has long said he wants a job in television.

1. Good Luck Strahan
I love watching Michael Strahan play football. He is one of those guys that plays hard, but helps up the other guy after every play and leaves each game with a smile on his face. He is a class act all the way. I still think he forced Farve to go down on that sack that broke the record.

2. His leadership will be missed, but I think the Giants will
be OK with out him. I am excited about Jason Tuck's potential.
