Updating previous reports, Sid Hartman, reports for the Minneapolis Star-Tribune, Oakland Raiders QB Rich Gannon is close to making his retirement from the NFL official. "I have that neck injury and it's not going to be wise for me not to play any more football," he said Sunday, May 15. "I am flying out to California [today] to see the doctor who has treated me for the injury." "I owe a lot to Al Davis of the Raiders for giving me the opportunity he did," Gannon said. "I hope to continue to do some work for the Raiders. I also have been talking to some of the networks about doing some work on the NFL telecasts."

If you're all wondering where Duhnise was this afternoon, Rich was on NFL Network Total Access.

The Sacramento Bee reports former NFL LB Bill Romanowski has a new job these days as a movie actor. He landed a part as a prison guard in the new version of the 1974 classic "The Longest Yard." Apparently, filmmakers were attracted to Romanowski's aggressiveness and, to hear him tell it, they got what they wanted in some of the tackling scenes. He has also landed a role in the upcoming sports film called "Bench Warmers."

Too bad his arm retired 10 years ago.

If it's any consolation, Walter's career will be very short.

Conceivable. I always thought he could have a fifteen year career, if only he could stay on the second string.
