Breaking: Former Florida State and Current Tennessee Titans LB Retires

Former Florida State LB and current Tennessee Titans LB Kamerion Wimbley has decided to hang up his cleats for good. The 9yr veteran was drafted by the Cleveland Browns no.13 overall in the 2006 NFL Draft, and had a 2yr stint with the Oakland Raiders, but went on to sign a 5 year $35 Million contract in 2012 with the Titans. Wimbley, 31, ends his career with 322 tackles, 53.5 sacks, 9 forced fumbles, and 2 interceptions (with a 75 yarder being his longest) in 140 games; his rookie season was a breakout season finishing with 11.0 sacks, but started only twice last season in 13 games with only 2 sacks. In a statement, Wimbley thanked his coaches, teams, and everyone that had given him an opportunity to play football; with his retirement, Wimbley plans to spend more time with his family and pursue other things outside of football. With his retirement, this opens the door for other LB’s on the Titans roster to fill the vacant spot he leaves behind.
