It looks like we have another significant retirement in the National Football League.

Dallas Cowboys Right Tackle, Doug Free has elected to retire at the age of 33.  Free was not an All-Pro Offensive Lineman, but was the emotional leader of a crew considered to be one of the best in the business.

Out of the University of Northern Illinois, Free was drafted by Dallas in the 4th Round of the 2007 Draft.  He would take over as the starting Right Tackle in the 2010 season and would start 114 of his 124 Games in the NFL, all of which were with the Cowboys.

Free is not likely to be considered a Hall of Famer, or even for the Cowboys Ring of Honor for that matter, but had a good career and we wish him the best in his post NFL career.
