Buccaneers Center Announces His Retirement


Tampa Bay Buccaneers center and fan favorite Ryan Jensen announced his retirement from the Nation Football League Friday via social media.

“With any chapter in the book of life, there is always an ending,” Jensen posted on social media. “The NFL chapter of my life is coming to a close. As this chapter closes and I reflect on every aspect of my career, it makes me proud. In the hard times and good, there is always something special to learn. Retiring from the game you have loved from a very young age is always hard. I am excited for this next chapter and the new opportunities and challenges it will bring. Thank you to the Ravens and the Buccaneers for taking a chance on a small town Colorado kid and to the Krewe for always raising the flags.”

The Baltimore Ravens selected Jensen in the sixth-round of the 2013 NFL Draft. After spending five seasons with the Ravens he signed with the Buccaneers in 2018. Jensen’s contract with the Bucs was at the time the highest paid contract for a center at four-years and $42 million dollars.

Following the team’s Super Bowl win Jensen suffered a severe knee injury during training camp in 2022. He would make a return in the team’s Wild-Card loss to the Dallas Cowboys. Unfortunately that would be his last game as a professional.
