Ellis Hobbs may retire

Not only have we probably seen the last of Ellis Hobbs in an Eagles uniform, we've likely seen him play his last game of football. According to Adam Schefter of ESPN, Hobbs may be leaning towards retiring after he has his second neck surgery in the last year. Hobbs is only 27 but clearly doesn't want to risk any further injuries that could cripple him for life.

While Hobbs was slowly being phased out of the Eagles plans in the secondary, it's always a shame when an athlete has to call it quits at such a young age. Hobbs was going to be a free agent at the end of the year and wasn't likely to come back to the Eagles, so his retirement doesn't affect the teams plans for next season.
