Ex-Patriot Damien Woody Reportedly Retires From National Football League

According to multiple sources around the league, New York Jets offensive lineman Damien Woody has informed his former team that he will retire from the NFL after 12 seasons. The team signed right tackle Wayne Hunter to replace him earlier this week.

Woody spent five of his twelve seasons with the New England Patriots after he was drafted by the Patriots in 1999. Woody also played for the Jets and the Detroit Lions in his career. However, the majority of his success in the NFL came with New England as their center.

As the team's center, Woody was a part of one of the best offensive lines in football that included Mike Compton and current left tackle Matt Light. Woody served as the team's center during their magical Super Bowl XXXVI win over the Rams. Woody was also a part of the Patriots squad that won Super Bowl XXXVIII over the Panthers.
