NASHVILLE Tenn. (AP)Michael Griffin says his 10-year NFL career was a blessing that lasted far longer than some of his former teammates at the University of Texas.The two-time Pro Bowl safety officially ended that career Monday by signing a one-day contract with the Tennessee Titans and retiring with the franchise that drafted him with the 19th pick overall in 2007. Griffin, who wore No. 33 in his career, retired at the age of 33.”I can’t say enough, thank y’all, just thank y’all,” Griffin said at a news conference inside the team’s indoor practice field. ”That’s probably all I can say is just thank y’all because it’s a blessing, and I’m so thankful to have that opportunity for the last nine years to play for this organization.”Griffin started 10 games as a rookie and played 141 games over nine seasons with Tennessee Carolina Panthers Customized Jerseys , including 103 straight between 2007 and 2013. He remains the franchise’s all-time leader in tackles by a safety with 912. Griffin also had 25 interceptions, seven sacks, 11 forced fumbles and six fumble recovers with his best season in 2008 with seven interceptions.Controlling owner Amy Adams Strunk thanked Griffin for his nine seasons with the Titans and wished him the best in retirement.”He was such a dependable player for us during his time here, missing only three games over nine seasons, and he was always among our leading tacklers,” Strunk said in a statement. ”His play earned him two Pro Bowl selections and the respect of his teammates. Michael also was invested in our community, finding ways to make a difference.”The Titans released Griffin in February 2016 when he was tied with Corey Graham of Buffalo for the most games played by a safety in the NFL between 2007 and 2015. Griffin signed with Minnesota but didn’t play a game. He then signed with Carolina and started six of 13 games with the Panthers in 2016. He finished his career starting 134 of 154 games played in 10 seasons.Griffin spent the 2017 season working out in case a team called and finished his degree at Texas. He said even when he was with the Vikings and Panthers he always felt he remained a Tennessee Titan.”I was always cheering my guys on Carolina Panthers T-Shirts , always texting them if someone went down, ask how they were doing, keep their heads up, if someone was released whatever it may be,” Griffin said. ”I always stayed in contact with those guys.”Titans linebackers Brian Orakpo and Wesley Woodyard and defensive linemen Jurrell Casey and DaQuan Jones were on hand for Griffin’s announcement.— Christian McCaffrey is on pace to break the Carolina Panthers single-season record for total yards from scrimmage. Through nine games CMC has churned out 1,018 yards (579 rushing, 439 receiving) which averages out to 113.1 yards per contest. If he can keep this pace over a full 16-game season , McCaffrey will produce 1,810 yards from scrimmage which would shatter the Panthers record. Per Football Reference, here are the team’s all-time leaders:Panthers yards from scrimmage leadersRankPlayerYearYardsRankPlayerYearYardsBy exceeding 1,800 yards, McCaffrey wouldn’t only break the Panthers’ single season record, he’d absolutely crush it. The mix of McCaffrey’s yards would make his season even more special. At his current pace he will finish the season with 1,029 rushing yards and 781 receiving yards. According to Football Reference only seven players in NFL history have eclipsed 1,000 rushing yards and 780 receiving yards in a single season: Marshall Faulk (three times), Todd Gurley, David Johnson, Le’Veon Bell, Matt Forte, Steven Jackson and Roger Craig. This list includes some of the most dominant and versatile backs in league history, and Christian McCaffrey looks poised to join their ranks. When looking at CMC’s season thus far, most of his production came between Weeks 2-3 and Weeks 9-10. In Week 2-3 his 333 yards led the NFL and was aided by his 102 receiving yards against the Atlanta Falcons followed by his 184 rushing yards against the Cincinnati Bengals. Over his last two games in Weeks 9-10, McCaffrey’s 295 yards is third in the NFL, trailing Nick Chubb and Ezekiel Elliott (tied at 299 yards) by just four yards. McCaffrey is also finding the end zone. His eight total touchdowns through nine games puts him on pace for 14 scores this year. A total of 14 touchdowns would rank third on the Panthers all-time list, trailing only DeAngelo Williams (20 in 2008) and Muhsin Muhammad (16 in 2004). CMC is on pace to re-write the Panthers record books. Or, said in another and more appropriate way Christian McCaffrey is on target to hurdle his way to the top.
