Jerry Rice Retires from NFL

Jerry Rice, the N-F-L's all-time leading receiver,

has announced his retirement. Arguably one of the greatest players

of all time, the 42-year-old Rice spent the summer in the Denver

Broncos camp trying to make the team as its number-three wide

receiver. But the Broncos told he would be a fourth or fifth

receiver at best this season. At Monday's news conference, the

former Mississippi Valley State star said he would rather call it

quits than be a bit player with the Broncos.
