Pro Football Hall of Fame quarterback and the Redskins longtime announcer Sonny Jurgensen is abruptly retiring from broadcasting.
The 84-year-old released a statement in which he thanked Washington fans “for being so generous to me and our teams, we owe it all to you.”
Jurgensen had a cannon-like arm, passing for 32,224 yards and 255 touchdowns in 18 seasons for the Redskins and Philadelphia Eagles.
He retired from playing after the 1974 season.
