Falcons center Todd McClure has one of the more inspiring stories. He was selected in the seventh round of the 1999 draft, and ended up having a fourteen year career.
What is sad is that we won’t see another year added to his career, after announcing his retirement on Twitter Wednesday night.
Huge thanks to everyone for all there well wishes. I am retiring an Atlanta Falcon. More to come at press conference after owners meetings.

What we should all remember is that McClure showed up each and every single Sunday. He was a guy that really signified what a captain truly is with his leadership and consistent play on the field.
To add to this news, this means second year player Peter Konz will likely be moved from guard to center, replacing McClure. Konz does have experience playing center since he primarily was a center throughout his collegian career at Wisconsin.
