13-Year Vet Bartrum Retires from NFL

Eagles tight end and long snapper Mike Bartrum is calling it a career. The 13-year veteran announced his retirement yesterday. Bartrum suffered a herniated disk in his neck playing against the Colts last season and was unable to recover. Bartrum spent seven seasons in Philadelphia, and also played for Kansas City, Green Bay and New England. In 188 career games, he has 11 receptions and six scores. He was selected to the Pro Bowl in 2005 and made Super Bowl appearances with the Pats and Eagles. He was a quarterback at Marshall, but a serious knee injury pushed him towards becoming a long snapper.
