Ex Bronco DT calls it quits.
PHILADELPHIA -- Philadelphia Eagles defensive tackle Paul Grasmanis announced his retirement on Tuesday.
Grasmanis served as an important part of the Eagles' defensive tackle rotation for the last six seasons, posting 126 tackles and 10½ sacks in 54 games.
"Paul is one of my favorite guys," Eagles coach Andy Reid said. "He was a tough player who gave everything he could possibly give to a football team. He played a lot of valuable snaps for the Eagles and helped us win a lot of football games."
Grasmanis, 31, played in 104 games during his 10-year NFL career and recorded 197 tackles, 12 sacks and three forced fumbles.
A fourth-round pick out of Notre Dame in 1996, Grasmanis played three years with the Chicago Bears and one with the Denver Broncos before joining the Eagles in 2000.

I remember him playing for us. He didn't stay long and didn't do much, but I liked him.
He always seemed to be a Randy Hilliard type player in that he really didn't have the talent to stick, but he stuck with hard work and perserverance.
