Safety David Whitmore, who came to the Kansas City Chiefs from San Francisco in the Joe Montana trade, said Monday he thinks the four-time Super Bowl winner is through.
“He’s probably done, that’s all I can say. I have to be careful what I say,” Whitmore told WIBW-TV in Topeka, Kan. “I talked to him last night. There’s a lot of things he’s real unhappy about with the organization and things of that nature.”
Montana, 38, has been the subject of several reports saying he intends to retire. He has one year left on the three-year contract he signed in 1993 after two years of inactivity in San Francisco, where he’d lost his job to Steve Young.
