Cleveland native London Fletcher looking at retirement

Washington Redskins linebacker London Fletcher, one of the most durable players in NFL history, says there's a "99 percent" chance he'll retire at the end of the season.

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 (University Heights)  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.
 

Fletcher is from Cleveland, Ohio
