Brandon Stokley WR BAL 12 Months
Brandon Stokley (concussion, injured reserve) is retiring from football.
Stokley has a long-and-winding concussion history. His latest head injury landed him on injured reserve earlier this month. Stokley knew it meant the end of his career. "I'm glad I played this year because now I know I'm done," Stokley said Thursday. "Had I not played this year, I would have always felt I could have kept playing. I still know I can play but my body just can't go through it anymore." Stokley is one of only 18 receivers in NFL history to play at least 15 seasons. The 37-year-old former fourth-round pick is hanging it up with 397 career catches to his name. His best season came in Peyton Manning's record-setting 2004, where he caught 68 passes for 1,077 yards and 10 touchdowns.

RB Bernard Scott was re-signed in a corresponding roster move. Stokley has a long history of concussions, which is what prompted the quick I.R.-trigger just two days after he went down. Stokley's career has been left for dead before, but going on 38 with only 13 catches in six games this season, the longtime slot dynamo has to be near the end. Stokley has 397 lifetime catches.
