One of the most-accomplished NFL offensive linemen of the past decade-plus is reportedly planning on retiring from the league.

Marshal Yanda, 35, will reportedly announce his retirement from the NFL later this week. News of Yanda's retirement was confirmed by ESPN Ravens reporter Jamison Hensley.

The longtime Baltimore Ravens offensive lineman was a third-round pick in the 2007 NFL Draft. He's played for Baltimore his entire NFL career.

Yanda, who starred collegiately at Iowa, became an eight-time Pro Bowler and a seven-time All-Pro player at offensive guard. He's likely to end up in Canton, Ohio in the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

The Ravens star will reportedly announce his retirement at a press conference on Wednesday morning.

Yanda is one of the most-accomplished players at his position in recent NFL memory. He started 166 games over the course of his career.

Best of luck in retirement, Marshal.
