Saints TE Benjamin Watson Planning To Retire After This Season


Saints veteran TE Benjamin Watson via an NFL films video that he plans to retire after the 2018 season.

“It’s time. It’s time to be done. I’m going to finish strong,” Watson said.

“You hope you get to exit on your own terms, you hope you get to exit with a great win, and it’s been great to be a part of this team and have this sort of winning at this point of my career,” Watson added.

Watson, 38, is a former first-round pick of the Patriots back in 2004. He spent six years in New England before joining the Browns in 2010.

Watson signed on with the Saints for the 2013 season and spent three years in New Orleans before joining the Ravens on a two-year, $7 million contract in 2016.

The Saints brought Watson back this past March on a one-year contract.

In 2018, Watson has appeared in 15 games for the Saints and caught 33 passes for 371 yards receiving and two touchdowns.
