CBS analyst Charlie Casserly reported this morning that Baltimore Ravens veteran center Matt Birk was set to retire at the conclusion of the NFL season. As it turns out, Birk has no intentions of retiring just yet.
“No, I haven’t made that decision yet and I don’t know Charley Casserly,” Birk said after the Ravens victory over the Houston Texans on Sunday. “I don’t even know who he is, I don’t know him, he didn’t talk to me.”
There is a chance that the 14-year veteran could call it quits at the end of the season if the Ravens successfully complete a Super Bowl run, but if the Ravens are eliminated next week to the New England Patriots, Birk sounds like a man who is ready to continue playing.
