Veteran OT Tyler Polumbus Retiring From NFL

Veteran OT Tyler Polumbus announced via his Facebook page on Tuesday that he’s retiring from the NFL.

In 2008 Liz and I began the journey of a lifetime. 8 years and 4 teams later we feel that it is time to call it a career in the NFL. When this journey began I was just hoping that I could make the team with extremely long odds in front of me as an undrafted rookie. I thought it would be amazing to say that I played a season or two with the Denver Broncos. I never imagined that God would keep opening door after door for me to continue in this game. I am incredibly grateful for His mercy, grace, and blessings He has given my family.”

Polumbus, 30, originally signed on with the Broncos as an undrafted free agent out of back in 2008. He lasted just over two years in Denver before he was waived and later claimed by the Lions.

Detroit traded him less than a week later to the Seahawks in return for a late-round draft pick.

Polumbus spent four years in Washington with the Redskins before brief stints with the Falcons and Broncos last year.

In 2015, Polumbus appeared in 13 games and played a total of 159 snaps, according to Pro Football Focus.
