Garrett 'surprised' by Sensabaugh's retirement
MAY 11, 2013 3:34p ET
Asked Friday about Sensabaugh calling it quits, Cowboys coach Jason Garrett said he was surprised by the 29-year-old's decision.
"It did surprise me,” Garrett said. “I think he has football left in him. I haven’t talked to him since then. He’s a young football player with a lot of football left in him. But one of the things that’s Line 1 in football is a desire to do it. It’s a hard, physical game. If you don’t really want to do it, you’re in the wrong profession. He’s had a very good career."
The 6-foot-1, 212-pounder started 60 games for the Cowboys over the last four seasons. He started 15 games last season, recording 58 tackles, a forced fumble and three passes defensed.
Sensabaugh, who was selected by Jacksonville in the fifth round of the 2005 NFL Draft, was cut by the Cowboys on March 4.
