Former Titans QB McNair to retire
Jim Wyatt • Staff Writer(Tennessean) • April 17, 2008 Former Titans quarterback Steve McNair will announce his retirement on Thursday at a noon press conference in Baltimore. McNair played from 1995 to 2005 with the Titans before playing the past two season with the Baltimore Ravens. He had his best season with the Titans in 2003 when he was named NFL co-MVP. Former Titans and current Baltimore Ravens Derrick Mason and Samari Rolle are expected to join McNair at the press conference Thursday. McNair was a first round draft pick by the Houston Oilers in 1995. He guided the team to Super Bowl XXXIV during the 1999, the franchise’s proudest moment. He was traded to the Ravens in 2006 for a fourth round pick because of his large salary cap number. McNair spent the past two seasons with the Ravens, guiding the team to the playoffs in 2006 as the Ravens finished 13-3. But McNair finished last season on injured reserve, and there had been speculation that he could end up retiring.
