Veteran OT Marcus Gilbert Retiring From NFL


On Monday, Cardinals OT Marcus Gilbert announced via his Twitter account that he’s retiring from the NFL. 

Gilbert, 33, is a former second-round pick of the Steelers back in 2011. The Steelers traded Gilbert to the Cardinals for a sixth-round pick in 2019. However, he was later placed on injured reserve with a knee injury. 

Arizona re-signed Gilbert last year to a one-year contract worth up to $3.75 million. He is in the final year of his six-year, $30.815 million contract that included a $7.65 million signing bonus and set to make a base salary of $4,865,103 for the 2019 season. 

Gilbert decided to opt-out of the 2020 season. 

For his career, Gilbert appeared in 88 games for the Steelers, making 74 starts for them, largely at right tackle.
