Reggie Wayne. Torrey Holt. Joey Galloway. All veteran receivers brought in to catch passes from the greatest quarterback whoever played. But after just weeks, they retire.

Decker announced on Sunday he was leaving football to spend more time with his wife and kids. He is 31 years old.
"We have a graduate level offense" Tom Brady said Monday on WEEI in Boston referring to players not being able to catch on over the years.
Decker had a rough training camp and his play was limited in the Pats three preseason games so far. Many of the members of the New England media who cover the Patriots didn't project him to make the team. So, retirement is the more graceful way to exit.
Monday morning Tom Brady ended his interview on WEEI's @KirkAndCallahan, hanging up after a few questions on Alex Guerrero being on the trip to Charlotte. He said he didn't want to get into the topic, and his patience grew thin after a few follow-up questions.
