Our @JasonLaCanfora reporting that Ellis Hobbs "likely" to retire after neck surgery. All the best to very good guy as he decides what to doNFL Network's Albert Breer. Hobbs was taken out of last week's game in a horrifying display that stopped the game for a long period of time. While he may not have been the best cornerback, he was a great teammate and Patriots citizen who did whatever was asked of him. Best of luck to him in the future.
