Bryant Hints At Retirement

On the same day he was named as the “Len Eshmont Award” winner for a record eighth time, San Francisco 49ers defensive tackle Bryant Young gave hints that this will be his final season in uniform. After Wednesday’s practice [[which Bryant sat out]], the 14-year veteran told NBC-11, “More than likely, this is my last home game.” Bryant, who turns 36 in January, was talking about his team’s final home game of the season this Sunday against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. One of the most respected defensive players in the NFL, Bryant is third in team history with 89-and-a-half sacks. The Len Eshmont Award is voted on by the team and is given to the player who best exemplifies inspirational and courageous play. The award is named after Len Eshmont, an original member of the 1946 San Francisco 49ers. Eshmont later coached at Navy and Virginia before passing away in 1957.
