Bruce returns home to retire

Isaac Bruce joined the retirement ranks this week, as a trade moved him from San Francisco to St. Louis so he could retire with the team for which he starred. Below are some thoughts on the deal; you can see how Bruce compares with other 2010 retirees in this post.

Bruce was traded to the Rams so that he could retire with the team for which he holds records for receptions, receiving yards, and receiving touchdowns. As part of the Greatest Show on Turf, Bruce was an elite receiver who produced time after time after time, including the go-ahead touchdown in St. Louis’ Super Bowl 34 victory. He made four Pro Bowls in his 16-year career and totaled 1,024 catches for more than 15,000 yards. Bruce falls just below the cut of Hall of Famers, but he was an elite receiver in his prime and continued to produce for a long and storied career that Rams fans will always celebrate and remember.
