Kyle Orton, the Brotastic game manager, has announced his retirement from the NFL. His 42-38 career record isn’t entirely impressive. His off-field behavior and drinking prowess, on the other hand, certainly is. Who could forget classic photos like this one?
And this one?
The mustachioed idol also provided the best moment of this season by taking a big, fat dip on the sidelines while still quarterbacking the Buffalo Bills.
If you’re thinking Orton called a big press conference to announce his decision, you must not know Orton. It appears he just pulled a high-profile Irish goodbye.
Kyle Orton stopped to grab his wallet around 9:00. Said he was going to a meeting, would talk later. Never came back. pic.twitter.com/8ImJP9ZvOg

Talked to Fred Jackson, Boobie Dixon and Robert Woods. All said they learned of Orton’s retirement from media. — Prescott Rossi (@PrescottRossi) December 29, 2014
Classic Orton. On behalf of Bros everywhere: we’ll miss you, bud.
