Veteran DE/OLB Trent Cole is scheduled to announce his retirement from the NFL on Christmas night and will do so as a member of the Philadelphia Eagles.

As a person playing ball, I’ll never be satisfied,” Cole said, via “I’m going to move on to the next thing. It was a great career, but it just doesn’t stop there. Being successful is never going to stop me. I’m not going to stop being successful. I’m going to go on to the next thing and try to be successful.

Cole previously mentioned that he wasn’t worried about whether an opportunity surfaced for him this year, considering the other opportunities he has available to him.
