Vrabel Calls it Quits to Take a Job with Ohio State


Veteran linebacker Mike Vrabel has decided not to return to the Chiefs this season, choosing to retire after 14 NFL campaigns to accept a role with Ohio State’s football program, Sports Radio 810 WHB tweeted Friday. The radio station’s tweet provided no further details, but profootballtalk.com reported Friday that there is a “very good chance” Vrabel will call it quits and that “an announcement could made as early as this coming Monday,” according to a source.

The 35-year-old was part of three Super Bowl-winning teams in his eight years with the Patriots from 2001 to 2008. Over the past two seasons with the Chiefs, Vrabel started 30 games and logged 73 total tackles, with two sacks and three forced fumbles. He spent his first four seasons with the Steelers after they drafted him in the third round of the 1997 NFL Draft out of Ohio State.
