Number 78 will now forever belong to Bruce Smith in Buffalo. The Buffalo Bills have just announced they will retire the legend's number at the 2016 home opener!

Personally I like to send a huge congratulations to Bruce Smith. This is a well deserved honor to a great player and a really nice guy. I have met him out in public when he was in the prime of his career and he was very gracious and laid back. When I first spoke with this giant of a man, I was surprised by his gentle voice and demeanor.
