The last link to the Jaguars' inaugural season has called it quits. Jimmy Smith, arguably the greatest player in Jaguars history, will announce his retirement at one o'clock this afternoon in a press conference at Alltel Stadium.
Smith spoke to reporters at the start of the Jaguars' offseason conditioning program a few weeks ago and talked of looking forward to the 2006 season. Today, he'll give his reasons for coming to a sudden and surprising decision to retire.
Jaguars.com will, of course, provide a detailed story on Smith's press conference.
