After 13 seasons and six Pro Bowls, former Raiders/Saints/Cowboys/Rams defensive tackle La'Roi Glover has called it a career. Two things jump out at you on his Pro Football Reference page. First, the durability: Dude hasn't missed a game in 11 seasons, and missed only one the year before that. Second, the 17 sacks he had with the Saints in 2000 to lead the league -- and then never finishing in the top 10 sacks again. He's the Brady Anderson of pass rushers.
