New York Giants defensive end Michael Strahan is retiring after 15 seasons during which he recorded 141 1/2 sacks.

Strahan first told FOX Sports of his decision saying that he wanted his teammates and the organization to be be aware of his plans as soon as possible so they could prepare accordingly.  Last week, the Giants signed veteran DE Renaldo Wynn bracing for this possibility.

Strahan obviously has an immediate future in television. He has worked in a fistful of commercials and has appeared frequently as a commentator for studio shows as well as a guest on the Best Damn Sports Show and other TV programs. Along the way, he has become one of the most recognizable figures in the NFL.
