Bruce heads back to Rams to retire

SANTA CLARA – Isaac Bruce is headed back to his old team to retire with the St. Louis Rams.

The San Francisco 49ers have traded the 37-year-old wide receiver to the Rams, who will hold a news conference with Bruce on Wednesday as he formally announces his retirement.

A four-time Pro Bowler, Bruce’s name had still been listed on the 49ers’ roster even though it was all but certain he wouldn’t be back for the 2010 season.

Bruce played 14 seasons for the Rams, who drafted him 33rd overall in 1994 when the team was still in Los Angeles. He then spent his final two years in the NFL with the 49ers, appearing in 26 games and making 22 starts. Bruce led San Francisco with 61 catches and 835 yards receiving in 2008.

He ranks second in NFL history in receiving yards (15,208), fifth in receptions (1,024) and ninth in receiving touchdowns (91). Bruce played in 223 career games.
