Jim Wyatt just tweeted that Kamerion Wimbley will retire from the NFL:
Wimbley had 2 years left on a deal that was scheduled to pay him close a little over $2 million in 2015 and a little over $3 million in 2016 (when you include roster bonuses for both years). Wimbley had a very good NFL career, but the signing didn't really work out for the Titans. He played 4-3 end when he first came over and it didn't work out so well. It seemed like the transition to 3-4 would be good for him, but it really wasn't.
Wimbley was drafted out of Florida State in the first round back in 2006 by the Cleveland Browns. He ends his career with 53.5 sacks in 9 seasons.
From the Titans:
