Is New York Giants' Michael Strahan Set To Retire?

Future Hall of Fame New York Giants Defensive End Michael Strahan has yet to report to the team's training camp. There is speculation that the seven-time Pro Bowler may be thinking about retirement.
There have been reports that Strahan's agent, Tony Agnone, has told the New York Giants that Strahan is in fact thinking about retiring.
Strahan has had a great career over the last 14 years and he may just be getting tired as he is 35 years of age. During that time he has had 132 1/2 sacks which is the most of any active player. He holds the single season record of 22 1/2 sacks. 
Strahan is scheduled to make $4 million this season. He may very well just be holding out and saying he is going to retire in an attempt to get a bigger contract. He did just finish a bitter divorce in which his ex-wife was awarded $15.3 million, along with child support of $18,000 a month for their twin daughters.
Either way, Strahan has had a great career and if he can do it one more year, the Giants will be greatful.
