Quarterback Robert Marve announces retirement
Winnipeg Blue Bombers quarterback Robert Marve announced his retirement from professional football on Tuesday.
“After consulting with my doctors, and contemplating my future, and life after football, I have made the decision to retire from this great game,” said Marve in a team statement. “I would like to thank the great fans of the Winnipeg Blue Bombers, and this organization, who have supported me through this process. I’ll deeply miss the on field competitiveness, but this is the right decision for me and my long term health.”
Marve played five games over the last two seasons with the Bombers after signing with the team out of Purdue.
In 2015, Marve was put into action when the Bombers decided to start him over Brian Brohm after Drew Willy got injured.
He finishes his career with two touchdown passes, 346 yards and four interceptions to go along with 189 rushing yards and four rushing touchdowns.
