It's not easy getting old, and certainly father time is not kind to players in the NFL. Offensive linemen have to deal with contact every single play and Saints center Max Unger announced over the weekend that he was retiring after 10 years in the league.  He will turn 33 next month and says he did not feel like he was playing up to his standard last season.  Unger added that the decision was not easy for him and came within the last month.  The Hawaii native says coaching high school football could be something he tries in the future back home.
