Via Real Redskins, one of my favorite Washington Redskins players Mike Sellers is hanging up his cleats and retiring from professional football.
Per Chick Hernandez, Mike Sellers is retiring from the NFL. He played 12 NFL seasons, 11 of them with the Redskins.
Sellers’ best season in terms of statistics came in 2005 when he caught 12 passes and scored seven touchdowns. But his real contributions came as a lead blocker and, especially, on special teams. Nobody wanted to see that 260-lb. body barreling towards him. Sellers also was a great locker room character and a fan favorite for his ability to bowl over defenders when he caught the ball in the open field.
Sellers will make his retirement official on Monday.
Mike Sellers was one of the Washington Redskins best special team players since Pete Wysocki. Thank you Mike Sellers for your outstanding play.
