Despite having plenty of miles left in the tank, former Super Bowl champion Brock Osweiler has decided to retire. His NFL career lasted seven seasons – with most of them coming in Denver.
Osweiler took over for Peyton Manning in 2015 and led the team to the top seed in the AFC. Denver eventually put Manning back under center, but the Arizona State product’s contributions helped earn him a massive payday.
The Houston Texans signed Osweiler to a four-year, $72 million contract in the offseason. Unfortunately his tenure with the team only lasted one season.
Houston traded Osweiler to Cleveland before he was eventually released. Once he hit the open market, the former second-round pick went back to the Mile High City.
He couldn’t recapture his 2o15 magic with the Broncos, so the six-foot-seven quarterback took his talents to South Beach.
Osweiler joined former Broncos’ offensive coordinator Adam Gase in Miami, but his time with the Dolphins didn’t last that long either. Now, the 28-year-old quarterback is prepared to move on from football.
According to Broncos reporter Mike Klis, Osweiler is retiring from the NFL.

“I’m extremely grateful for the time I did receive playing in the National Football League,” Osweiler told 9News.
