Nick Mangold officially retires: Former Ohio State center done after 11 NFL seasons

The former center will be signing a one-day contract Tuesday and retire as a member of the Jets.

Mangold never caught on with another team during the 2017 season, and rather than pursuing possibilities for 2018, he stepped away.

On Twitter, Mangold showed his usual sense of humor, beginning his announcement with: "I DECLARE RETIREMENNNTTTTTT!" The 34-year-old put together a stellar career in NY, picking up seven Pro Bowl honors and twice being named a first-team All-Pro.

The former Buckeye center from 2002-2005 did not play in 2017 and was largely a casualty of his age and price tag because of the salary cap. He then posted a lengthy reflection on his career, going all the way back to his first day of pee-wee football.

Mangold was a first-round draft pick out of Ohio State in 2006 and immediately became a starter for NY. "I was privileged that Woody Johnson, Mike Tannenbaum, and Eric Mangini took a chance on with me with the 29th pick of the 2006 NFL Draft". He lived through all of the ups and downs of the AFC Championship runs in 2009 and 2010 to the dismal seasons that came later. I learned this attribute from the vets that I played with.

After playing in 164 career games, Mangold re-injured his ankle during the 2016 season and missed the remaining eight games. "I have no idea what that capacity is but I'm sure I will figure something out in the future".
