After a 10-season NFL career, Bills defensive end Chris Kelsay is walking away from the game. The 33-year-old Kelsay announced his retirement on Wednesday, the club announced.
The 6-foot-4, 263-pound Kelsay spent his entire career in Buffalo, starting 120 games. He recorded 440 tackles and 32.5 sacks. In his final campaign, Kelsay appeared in nine games, starting four. A neck injury ended his season.
“One of my goals was to finish my career with the team that drafted me and that came to fruition,” Kelsay said in a story published on the Bills’ website. “I feel very blessed to say that.”
Kelsay appeared in 147 career games, 16th-most in Bills history, according to the club. He was the Bills’ second-round pick in the 2003 draft, the same one that brought Willis McGahee to Buffalo.
