Hobbs: No Decision About Future Has Been Made

Despite reports that surfaced over the weekend that stated cornerback Ellis Hobbs would definitely retire after six NFL seasons, Hobbs said that isn't the case ... yet.

In a text message to PhiladelphiaEagles.com, Hobbs wrote, "I have not made any decisions."

Hobbs' season ended on the Injured Reserve list after he suffered a neck injury in the Week 11 win over the New York Giants. Hobbs' 2009 season also ended prematurely due to a neck injury.

In 2010, Hobbs started seven of the eight games he played in and recorded 20 tackles, an interception and six pass knockdowns. He also was the leading kickoff returner and averaged 21.6 yards per return.

Acquired from New England in a 2009 draft-day trade, Hobbs started in 56 career games and had 10 interceptions. He averaged 26.5 yards per kickoff return and scored three touchdowns. He was a starter on New England's 16-0 regular season team in 2007 that won the AFC title along with Asante Samuel.
