Former Leander Lion and Texas Longhorn Blake Gideon is hanging it up. After his UT career, the safety was signed as a free agent by Arizona last year. He was cut by the Cardinals and then picked up by Denver to their practice squad. Gideon told YNN sports on Wednesday that he has decided to retire on his own terms and that he felt the right time was now.
