HentrichKnown for a tricky knuckleball that caused punt returners fits, Hentrich’s final season ended with a torn calf muscle after just two games. But he was around the team much more than most players on IR, helping tutor his replacement, Brett Kern.
Hentrich’s retirement is most notable because he was the last continuous link on the roster to the 1999 Titans, who played in the franchise’s lone Super Bowl.
Defensive end Jevon Kearse was on the Super Bowl team, later leaving as a free agent and returning after four years in Philadelphia. He’s going to be a free agent and won’t be back.
