Former Packers & Lions G T.J. Lang Announces Retirement From NFL


On Friday, former Packers and Lions G T.J. Lang announced that he’s officially retiring from the NFL.

Lang dealt with a number of injured in recent years and was limited to appearing in just six games last year, due to a neck injury. 

There hasn’t been any reported interest in Lang since he was released by the Lions, but reports had said that he was likely to call it a career, so this isn’t a huge surprise.

Lang, 31, is a former fourth-round pick of the Packers back in 2009. He has played out his four-year, $20.8 million contract before agreeing to a three-year, $28.5 million contract from the Lions with $19 million fully guaranteed with the Lions in 2017.

Lang was set to make a base salary of $8.25 million for the 2019 season when the Lions released him a few weeks ago. 

In 2018, Lang appeared in six games for the Lions.
