Former Ragin’ Cajun Stokley Retires After 15 NFL Seasons
Future Hall Of Fame Quarterback Peyton Manning once called Brandon Stokley the best teammate he’s ever had. They played together in both Indianapolis and Denver.
The former Ragin’ Cajun standout is calling it a career after 15 NFL seasons. The Ravens placed Stokley on Injured Reserve Dec. 10th, after he sustained a concussion against the Minnesota Vikings. Stokley caught passes from Peyton, and Eli Manning, and Jake Delhomme over the course of his college, and pro career. He scored a touchdown in Super Bowl XXXV.
Stokley told The Denver Post he’s decided 15 years, and multiple concussions have told him it’s time to retire. Peyton Manning said of him, “He’s a guy you want on your team in your corner. Fifteen years as a slot receiver in the NFL, going across the middle, taking hits, it’s almost unheard of.”
