The veteran offensive lineman announced his retirement from the NFL via Twitter this morning.
“After much thought, prayer and discussion with loved ones, I have decided to retire from the NFL,” Cherilus wrote. “I am forever grateful to the teams, my teammates, the medical staffs and the fans.”
The 32-year-old spent nine years in the NFL with the Lions, Colts and Bucs, playing 132 games. He’s only a day removed from a report suggesting he wasn’t actively seeking work, so now he’s decided to make it clear he wasn’t going to.
