Brock Osweiler Retires from NFL



Veteran quarterback Brock Osweiler officially announced his retirement from the NFL on Wednesday.

Osweiler, who played for the Denver Broncos, Houston Texans, and Miami Dolphins during his career, steps away from the game at the age of 28 and has not signed with a team during 2019.

Osweiler, who last played for the Dolphins in 2018, said that he is “extremely grateful for the time I did receive playing in the National Football League”, according to 9News in Denver’s Mike Klis.

“The experiences I did have, people I did meet, relationships I did make — I’m not going to dwell on the things that didn’t happen in my career.

“Being a kid from Kalispell, Montana, playing for the Denver Broncos, winning a Super Bowl, having the opportunity to sign a second contract — when you look back on it, I couldn’t be more appreciative. It was great.”

Osweiler is best known for his performance during the 2015 season, when he filled in for an injured Peyton Manning to go 5-2, and help the Broncos earn the AFC’s top seed en route to their Super Bowl 50 championship.

His performance in 2015 helped him land a $72 million contract with the Texans.

“That 2015 season is something that is very special,” Osweiler said. “The coaches, the players, they mean the world to me. I was thankful to have had the opportunity to play the role I did, but that was the ultimate team deal. There was a ton of talent on that football team, but I would say we were the closest of all teams in the National Football league. Our culture was beyond anything that can ever be created. It was so genuine, so real that I think any coach or player on that team would have done anything for anybody in that building that year.”

Osweiler didn’t last long in Houston, who traded him to the Cleveland Browns, who released him prior to the 2017 season leading him back to the Broncos.

“I have my health. I have the ring. There’s a lot of things I still wanted to accomplish. And I have a lot more left in the tank. But, hey, sometimes you don’t get that opportunity. And given that, it’s all good,” Osweiler said.
