Mike Wahle has decided to retire from football after being released by the Seahawks Friday.
He underwent a second surgery in December, but his right shoulder just wouldn't cooperate. Rookie Max Unger will move into the starting lineup at guard, with Rob Sims possibly moving to the left side. Wahle, 32, blocked for Brett Favre and Ahman Green on some quality Packers teams from 1998-2004 before earning his first Pro Bowl selection with the Panthers in 2005. Still, the Seahawks should've seen this coming before they signed him to a $20 million contract last offseason. It looked like a bad move at the time, and obviously proved to be.
