Center Eric Wood’s retirement is on hold over questions about whether the Buffalo Bills can ask him to return a portion of the contract bonus he received for signing a two-year extension in August, a person with direct knowledge of the situation said.

According to the NFL’s collective bargaining agreement, teams can ask for a portion of bonus money to be returned if a player retires before his contract expires. There is, however, a gray area if a player retires because of a career-ending injury.

The person said the discrepancy is the reason Wood did not announce his retirement as anticipated during a news conference on Monday. The person spoke on the condition of anonymity because neither Wood nor the team commented on the matter that delayed the start of the news conference by nearly an hour.

When the event finally began, Wood read only from a prepared statement and spoke for less than two minutes, during which he said he was still on the Bills roster. Wood was scheduled to announce his retirement after revealing on Friday that he would no longer be cleared to play after being diagnosed with a severe neck injury.

Radio episode

Patriots quarterback Tom Brady says he’s reconsidering whether to continue a long-running weekly radio appearance after a host at the station called his daughter “an annoying little pissant.”

Brady cut short an appearance on Monday morning and said, “I’ll obviously evaluate whether I want to come on this show again.”

WEEI host Alex Reimer made the remarks about Brady’s 5-year-old daughter after watching the first episode of a Brady documentary called “Tom vs. Time” that is airing on Facebook. Reimer’s show aired Thursday, four days before Brady’s weekly morning radio segment with different hosts.

Brady says, “It’s very disappointing when you hear that certainly with my daughter or any child. They certainly don’t deserve that.”

The station says Reimer has been suspended indefinitely.
