NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Titans left guard Steve Hutchinson has decided to retire after 12 NFL seasons, the last cut short by a knee injury that limited him to 12 games.
Hutchinson announced his decision Tuesday morning on Twitter and the Titans confirmed it.
Hutchinson wrote he was retiring after a "great run" in the NFL. He thanked the Seattle Seahawks, Minnesota Vikings and Titans along with fans of those teams.
A 7-time Pro Bowler and 5-time All Pro, Hutchinson started all 169 games he played spending his first five seasons in Seattle, six in Minnesota and his final season in Tennessee.
The 35-year-old Hutchinson was placed on injured reserve Dec. 5 after hurting his right knee in a 24-10 loss to Houston. He signed a 3-year deal with Tennessee in March 2012.
