Madden NFL 15: List of players who retire after first season

Madden NFL 15 Screenshot - 1163774

I'm a huge Connected Franchise player when it comes to Madden. If you're looking for help in planning your roster moves for your NFL team past the first season, one thing that might be useful is knowing what players are going to retire after the first season. 

Interestingly enough, during the offseason, there's no action to view the list of retiring players. I had to go into League Transactions and filter it by retired players. And even then it wouldn't show me who retired from what team; it was just a list of players' names and their positions. It also didn't list why they retired -- whether it was just being old or injured. So I went ahead and listed what team and overall rating they were on the default Madden roster for you.

Here are the players that retired in the first offseason of Madden NFL 15:
