WR Eddie Kennison forced by NFL to retire?

The KC Star reports that the NFL seemed to be pushing Eddie Kinnison to hang up the boots, but Kinnison says that was not the case at all:

No NFL team was interested in Eddie Kennison’s services, so there was only one thing for him to do. Kennison called an end Monday to his 13-season NFL career, even signing with the Chiefs so he could retire as part of the organization.

“The decision to retire was not actually mine,” said Kennison, 37. “I just had to sign the papers. It was the National Football League or the teams in the National Football League that said, ‘He’s probably too old to play.’ To them, 37 is 107 in dog years. But to me, 37 is young. I think I can still get out and compete with anyone out there. “It’s been one of those situations where you know it’s coming but you really don’t want it to end. I’m closing this chapter and looking forward to the next chapter in my career and in my life.”
