According to Killer, Casey Fitzsimmons has announced his retirement today at the age of 29. The concussions that he has suffered throughout his career are noted as the reason for the early retirement.
Pretty sad, as FitzSimmons seemed to thoroughly love the game and was a solid contributor when healthy, wether on offense of special teams. Not too sure what this means for the Lions, as we already have Pettigrew, Heller, and Gronkowski, as well as all of the tight ends we have brought in for looks for the upcoming draft. Perhaps that is why the Lions have been examining these prospects, is because they already knew FitzSimmons was done for.
