The Facts: Delhomme isn't ready to say he's officially retiring, but the 14-year veteran said his playing career is likely over after Sunday's season-ending 20-13 loss to the Baltimore Ravens. "I'm being very realistic," Delhomme told the Houston Chronicle. "I turned 37 last week. I'm not moving my family. I'm (not) going somewhere to start over. This kind of fell into my lap, so to speak."
Diehards Line:Delhomme joined the Texans on Nov. 29 after the team worked out several veterans to provide depth at quarterback. Matt Schaub and Matt Leinart both suffered season-ending injuries, forcing rookie T.J. Yates into the starting lineup. Though Delhomme did not reach a decision after the game, he said he would have no trouble calling it a career after this season. "You never want to say never," Delhomme said. "But ... to come to a place like this, where everybody's on the same page, to see the way these guys work, it's been great. If I've left this game, I've left it on a high note."
