Arians and Licht’s Statements on Buccaneers Marpet Retiring


The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are in the market for an offensive guard, OK maybe two. Pro Bowl guard and anchor on the Bucs’ offensive line Ali Marpet retired Sunday.

Marpet’ statement on retiring,
“After seven formidable years with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, I’ve come to the decision to retire from the game that has given me so much. This organization and the people surrounding it have helped not only fulfill a dream, but also helped build me into the person I am today. I’ve made Tampa Bay my home and I look forward to serving this community in the coming years. To the coaches and teammates, family and friends, an Instagram post simply can’t express the profound impact you’ve had on me. I’m eternally grateful. Thank you Tampa Bay.”

Buccaneers general manager Jason Licht and head coach Bruce Arians released these statements about Marpet’s retirement.

Two great tributes to a great player and even better human being. Congratulations from all of us at Bucs Report Mr. Marpet, you will be missed.
