Redskins LB London Fletcher would return for playoff contender

Washington Redskins linebacker London Fletcher has said that he is “99 percent” certain that he will retire after this season. So what is the one percent scenario that would lure Fletcher away from our out of retirement? He told ESPN’s John Keim in their “Friday Conversation.”

“It would have to be maybe a team that has six games left, a playoff contender … It won’t be for a 16-game season,” Fletcher said.

Fletcher has expressed a desire to spend more time with his wife and daughters. He would have preferred the Ray Lewis way to end a career, with a Super Bowl parade.

“Obviously everyone wants to go out like Ray Lewis with the Super Bowl parade,” Fletcher said, via ESPN. “That would be a great way to go out. But it wasn’t in the cards for me if this is it. But it’s more again about trying to leave a legacy and putting some seeds in place and hopefully they’ll grow … and a year down the road I can be proud of this organization. That’s how I really look at it.”
