Michael Strahan has been in the NFL since 1993. The 15-year veteran defensive end, who will turn 37 in November, has been an All-Pro seven times and a Pro-Bowler six. He possesses the NFL record for most sacks in one season with 22.5.

Strahan, who has suffered through injuries, has been contemplating retirement for the past two years and said to the AP that he feels he knows what he wants to do but is not ready to announce his decision. The reason, he noted, that he was not yet making his decision public was because he wants to make sure it’s 100 percent what I want to do.

His professional career statistics include 141.5 sacks, 794 tackles and 21 forced fumbles. Strahan has played in 200 NFL games and last season was an important part of the 2007-2008 Super Bowl Championship Giants. The star DE had two tackles and one sack in New York’s Super Bowl XLII victory over the New England Patriots.

Prior to last season, Strahan missed training camp as he contemplated retirement. Now with a Super Bowl ring on his finger, the question is does Strahan still have enough game in him to play one more season?
