It was barely over a year ago that we talked about this

Former Denver Broncos linebacker Al Wilson made official today what everyone already thought: He’s retiring from the NFL.


“I thank all my fans from my high school and college days in Tennessee on into my time in the NFL and Denver for their continued love and support throughout the years,” Wilson said on JockLife.com. “I was truly blessed to play the game I love and I am forever grateful to those that believed and entrusted in me. Playing for my fans and my teammates made the game of football everything to me.”


Wilson suffered a neck injury in December of 2006, and he hasn’t played since then. He explored opportunities for a comeback this year, including visiting the Browns in March, but he has now decided to call it a career.


Wilson started 119 games in eight NFL seasons, all with the Broncos.


Tuck for Al Wilson.


Wow, thank god we stood pat.
