Patriots OT Matt Light Plans To Retire?
While no official announcement has been made, New England Patriots left tackle Matt Light plans to retire this off-season, Mike Florio of ProFootballTalk.com reports. Light skirted questions about his playing future during a Commissions for Charity event on Tuesday. "No, Iím just rocking and rolling. Iíve been in Ohio, working on some stuff for the (Matt Light) Foundation. We have a youth turkey hunt coming up. Other than that itís been pretty quiet," Light said according to Karen Guregian of the Boston Herald, who noted that Light was noticeably slimmer and appeared to not know that the team had begun their off-season workout program on Monday. Light started 15 games in 2011 and the 33-year-old has one season remaining on his two-year, $12 million contract from last August. If Light plays, he's scheduled to earn a $3.4 million base salary, $100,000 workout bonus and can earn up to $1.7 million in incentives. If Light hangs up his cleats, the Patriots will save $5 million in salary cap space and turn to Nate Solder or Sebastian Vollmer at left tackle.
