Chris Samuels Is Retiring (Update: Or Not)

The awful news that we’d heard rumors about this week is apparently coming true: Chris Samuels will retire. More from Jason Reid:

Samuels has decided to retire because of a severe neck injury he suffered about two weeks ago, league sources said. Samuels, who earlier this week traveled to California to consult with a specialist, has shared his decision with some at Redskins Park.

Pretty shocking.

And while we certainly wish Samuels the best, hopefully this will serve to further illustrate the hole Vinny Cerrato has driven this team into. We have no other lineman who can even attempt to fill Samuels’ shoes. Not even close. And it’s because Cerrato has drafted more receivers than offensive linemen during his tenure with the Skins. If THIS can’t serves as a wake-up call for Snyder, then nothing will.

Now excuse me, I need to go study up on the available left tackles in this year’s draft class.

Update: Reid’s story has changed and Samuels is only done for the season.

    maybe he can stay on as a o-line coach and help out Bugel or take over for Bugel. And speaking of coaching o-line, why not have any of the old hogs come in and share some knowledge. and just not the old hogs, but what about any of the old coaches who used to be with the team that snyder has either screwed over or black listed from showing up? (did i just answer my own questions?)

    It was a good decade, for him at least.

    Bon Voyage, big fella. Sorry you never got to play on a team that was worth a shit.

    Do you think he might be retiring just so he can have beer again?

    If I were him the thought would have crossed my mind.
