Tennessee Titans tackle Michael Roos announced his retirement today via Twitter, after informing the team of his decision. Roos concludes his 10-year NFL career, all with the Titans, ranking 11thon the franchise list of games played with 148.
“After 10 years as a Tennessee Titan I have decided to retire from football,” Roos said. “I have given this decision much consideration. I feel fortunate to have played this long coming from a TE turned DE turned OT from Eastern Washington University.
“I want to thank my coaches Mike Woodward (HS), Aaron Best, Paul Wulff, Beau Baldwin (EWU), Jeff Fisher, Mike Munchak, Ken Whisenhunt, Bruce Matthews (Titans), and all the coaches who made me a better player and man. To all the men I’ve shared the field with: I’m honored to have called you teammates. We have made memories for many lifetimes.
“I’m excited to begin the rest of my life, and I am grateful to do so now, while I am fully healthy…Thank you Titans fans for your support all these years. Cheers!”
Roos earned All-Pro honors and a Pro Bowl invitation in 2008, on a team that finished the regular season with the NFL’s best record and allowed a league-low 12 sacks. He was part of a line that paved the way for a 1,000-yard rusher nine times and over a nine-year period (2005-13) and anchored a line that ranked third in the NFL in fewest sacks allowed during the same time period. As an offensive line, the highlight might have been opening holes for RB Chris Johnson’s 2,000-yard rushing season in 2009.
