Kyle Vanden Bosch's agent dismissed rumors that is client is contemplating retirement.
After spending the past five years with the Titans, Vanden Bosch is a free agent who could draw interest from the Bears, who need help at defensive end.
"I laugh when I hear that,'' agent Tony Agnone told the Nashville Tennessean. "Kyle hasn't thought one iota about retiring. And if you look at all the great sack guys in the NFL . . . if you were great before you were 30 then you can be great after 30. It is kind of a joke that once you reach 30 people say you are washed up as a defensive end.''
Agnone believes Vanden Bosch, 31, will not play for the Titans next season. Coach Jeff Fisher has said he wants everybody back but the team has not opened contract negotiations.
