A ten year career in the NFL is an accomplishment for any player. And a ten year career, spent entirely with one team, is amazing in the current pro football landscape.
Chris Kelsay did just that, spending his entire ten years in the NFL with the Bills, the team that drafted him in the second round in 2003 out of Nebraska. He talked about how important that was to him Wednesday night, just after announcing his retirement from the team.
“It means the world to me, to be honest with you,” Kelsay said in an appearance on The John Murphy Show. “When the Bills drafted me in ’03, I always said I wanted to play my entire career with the team that drafted me. I played through two and a half contracts, and I have an opportunity to retire the same place that drafted me.”
While he’s proud of his Bills career, Kelsay admitted he leaves the game wishing for more.
“You wish we could have done more on the field, and got to the playoffs and push to a championship,” he told host John Murphy. ”
“But I’m at peace , I’m happy with my decision and I look forward to the Buffalo Bills moving forward into the future. I’ll always be a Bill at heart. It’s the only place I’ve ever known.”
