Stefen Wisniewski is officially ready to enter the next chapter of his life. Moments ago, the veteran offensive lineman announced his retirement.
Wisniewski, 32, began his NFL career with the Raiders. He then made a brief stint with the Jaguars before signing with the Eagles. The former second-round pick won his first Super Bowl title during the 2017 season, as the Eagles defeated the Patriots in an absolute thriller.
Two seasons later, Wisniewski won a Super Bowl with the Chiefs. In his retirement letter, he revealed that he’ll never forget hoisting the Lombardi Trophy twice.
“After ten seasons in the NFL I would like to officially announce my retirement,” Wisniewski wrote. “I have had a truly blessed career, and though things didn’t always go exactly how I might’ve planned, I wouldn’t change a thing, for I believe God used the trials to shape me into a tougher, wiser, stronger, more humble man of God. I am especially grateful that I had the opportunity to be a starting guard for two Super Bowl championship teams – the 2017 Philadelphia Eagles and the 2019 Kansas City Chiefs. Those experiences were absolutely amazing for me, and I will treasure those memories forever.”
Wisniewski thanked his wife, parents, sister, coaches, trainers, teammates and fans in his retirement letter. He said that he’ll miss hearing the fans roar when his team comes out of the tunnel.
“As we learned while playing in empty stadiums last year, playing football is zero fun without you all,” Wisniewski said. “The adrenaline rush from hearing 60,000 plus fans screaming at the tops of their lungs for me and my team is one of the things I will miss most about playing.”
