Jason Ferguson Says Goodbye

After 13 years in the NFL and 2 in Miami, nose tackle, Jason Ferguson, has officially retired from professional football.

He was not a flashy player but was considered a very dependable player who was probably one of the top 5 Nose Tackles in the league before getting injured last season.

Ferguson was facing an 8 game suspension in 2010, but alluded to retirement more than once in his 2 seasons as a Dolphin.  Ferguson had been practicing in a limited role during OTAs, so the timing of this announcement is a bit surprising.

This means Randy Starks' move to NT is likely to be a permanent one.  Paul Soliai, Travis Ivey and Ryan Baker are competing for the backup spot.
