Over the last few weeks, ever since Ryan Jensen got hurt, numerous Bucs fans have been clamoring for Tampa Bay to sign former Cleveland Browns center J.C. Tretter. That will not happen now, as Tretter has officially announced he is retiring from the NFL; as of this morning. This comes as a bit of a surprising announcement, as I would suspect that next to nobody thought Tretter would be calling it quits and hanging up his cleats at this point in his brief 8-year career.

J.C. Tretter was probably going to be too expensive for Tampa Bay to be able to sign anyway, due to their very limited salary cap space.
In an article on ESPN.com titled “J.C. Tretter, former Cleveland Browns center retires after 8 seasons in NFL but remains NFLPA president” by ESPN Staff Writer Jake Trotter, Trotter writes: “Former Cleveland Browns center J.C. Tretter has retired from football after eight seasons in the NFL, but will remain in his role as president of the NFL Players Association. Tretter, 31, announced his decision Thursday on Twitter, saying he is leaving the game “on my own terms” but also that he is “looking forward to doubling down on my work as NFLPA president.”
The Browns released Tretter in a salary cap-clearing move this past March, just after he was re-elected to a second term as NFLPA president.
