Former Texans cornerback Aaron Glenn signed a one-day contract with the team on Wednesday in order to announce his retirement from the NFL in his own hometown. The three-time Pro Bowler told the AP:
“This brings closure, closure to a 15-year career,” Glenn said. “Playing football is my life. To this day, it’s still my life. My wife will tell you, it’s hard for me to sit at home and watch a game because I get excited. Sometimes I want to take my son out and play 1-on-1 with him sometimes. But, it’s a good thing. This is the right thing to do.”
Glenn, born in Humble, played for the Jets, Texans, Cowboys, Jaguars and Saints, and earned two Pro Bowl honors with the Jets (‘97, ‘98) and one with the Texans in their inaugural season (‘02).
