Tedy Bruschi is retiring after a 13-year NFL career marked by an inspiring return to the Patriots as a starting linebacker eight months after a stroke, according to an ESPN.com report. A person familiar with his decision told The Associated Press that Bruschi will announce his retirement at a news conference at 10:45 a.m. ET on Monday morning at Gillette Stadium. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because no announcement had been made. The decision was first reported by Al Michaels during NBC's Sunday night Bears-Broncos telecast.
