Tyler Polumbus, one of the offensive linemen for the Super Bowl Champion Denver Broncos, has officially announced his retirement from the NFL in a Facebook post Tuesday Morning. We wish him the best in his life after football.
Another Denver Bronco is riding off into the sunset as a Super Bowl Champion.
Almost one month after Peyton Manning announced his retirement from the league, Broncos offensive tackle Tyler Polumbus has decided to hang up the cleats. He does so after eight years in the league.
While he was a free agent at the time of his retirement, Tyler Polumbus thought long and decided that it was time to hang them up. He came into the league as an undrafted rookie. The Broncos took a chance on him and he was able to play a couple of seasons with the team.
Polumbus has played on four teams during his NFL career. Other than the Broncos he also had stints with the Seattle Seahawks, Washington Redskins, and Atlanta Falcons.
Tyler Polumbus came back to Denver after an injury to Ty Sambrailo forced him to miss the rest of the season. While Polumbus did not have a whole lot of playing time, it seemed that whenever he was on the field, he was making a difference on the line.
One moment in particular that very few people noticed right away was that when Peyton Manning came into the game against the San Diego Chargers, that the running game seemed to have improved as well as the protection for the quarterback.
Gary Kubiak made a move to get Michael Schofield out and placed Tyler Polumbus in his spot. And he was a significant part in the Broncos’ win that afternoon.
He was a solid pick up for the Broncos for this magical season and he made the most of the chances that he got. And he got to go out as a Super Bowl Champion.
Tyler Polumbus, thank you for everything that you have done for this team during your time here. We are glad that you could go out on top. A huge Mile High Salute to You! Good luck with your life post-NFL.
