Amidst the hoopla that surrounded Ray Lewis’ retirement with the Super Bowl Champion, Baltimore Ravens, another potential Hall of Fame entry has announced that he is calling it a career. Center, Matt Birk has ended his career at the age of 36, and has done so as a Champion. Birk was a six time Pro Bowl Selection, all of which occurred while he was a member of a Minnesota Vikings. Birk was also considered one of the “good guys” of the game, as he was named in 2011 as the Walter Payton Man of the Year, which honoured his community service. We thank Matt Birk for his years in the NFL, and we now wonder aloud about his Hall of Fame potential.
