Oakland Raiders defensive end Justin Tuck will retire after 11 NFL seasons, he announced on Facebook.
“After months of praying and careful consideration, I have decided to retire from the game of football,” Tuck wrote. “I’ve had 11 great years and honestly I leave with very few regrets.”
A third-round draft pick of the Giants in the 2005, Tuck spent the first nine years of his career in New York, winning two Super Bowls and earning two trips to the Pro Bowl. He then moved to Oakland, where he recorded six sacks and 35 tackles in two seasons.
Tuck finishes his career ranked 89th on the all-time sack list with 66.5.
Several former teammates congratulated Tuck on his career after the announcement.
