Fletcher announced Wednesday that Sunday's game against the Dallas Cowboys will almost certainly be his final home game in the NFL.

He held out a one percent chance that he'll return next year - just in case he has a change of heart.

The 38-year-old undrafted player from Division III John Carroll has never missed a game in the NFL. He has played in 254 consecutive games, the longest streak by a defensive player since the 1970 merger. He's also started 213 in a row, the all-time mark for a linebacker.
