Former Tennessee Titan DT Jurrell Casey announced his retirement Thursday morning, calling it a career after 10 seasons in the league.
Casey spent his first nine seasons in Tennessee before playing for the Denver Broncos in his final year. His last season was cut short after just three games due to a bicep injury. He was released by the Broncos in February.
Casey’s best years were spent in Nashville, amassing an impressive five Pro Bowl selections and two Walter Peyton NFL Man of the Year nominations. Selected 77th overall in the 2011 NFL draft, he went on to play in 139 regular-season games, missing just five games in that stretch.
His 51 career sacks come up just one short of the franchise record, held by Javon Kearse since the franchise relocated in 1997.
Jurrell Casey was a six-time defensive captain for the Titans, one of the best defensive linemen in the league throughout the 2010s, a fan favorite, and a massive credit to his local community.
