Report: Tennessee Titans Guard Steve Hutchinson To Retire

Jeff Hanisch-USA TODAY Sports

After a season ending knee injury, one of our era's best guards is hanging up his cleats.

Reports are coming out (from both Jim Wyatt and Jay Glazer) that veteran Titans OG Steve Hutchinson will announce his retirement from the NFL tomorrow. Hutchinson joined the Titans last year after a lengthy career as one of the most lauded and highly-paid guards of the 2000's. Hutch came into the league in 2001 with the Seattle Seahawks, then left to join the Minnesota Vikings in one of the more controversial free agency moves you'll ever see: Seattle put the transition tag on Hutchinson, and the Vikings created a contract with a 'poison pill', which would have hammered the Seahawks if they'd tried to match it.

Hutchinson leaves the NFL as a 7-time All Pro, 7-time Pro Bowler and a 2-time NFL Alumni Lineman of the Year.

He played the game with the humility, intensity and toughness known only to truly great offensive linemen. While we Titans fans didn't get to see his greatest years up close, every fan of football should be grateful for the mark he left on every field, every locker room and every community he called home.
