Browns OT Ryan Tucker officially announced his retirement on WKNR AM/850 on Thursday.

Tucker played 12 NFL seasons and the last seven were with the Browns. He was marred by injuries and illness over his last four and was on I.R. for all of 2009 after having knee surgery, so the 34-year old has decided to call it a career.

Though he has yet to officially retire, free agent OT Ryan Tucker reportedly "considers his career over."

Browns placed OL Ryan Tucker (knee surgery) on injured reserve.

It was reported Monday that that Browns had released Tucker, but that isn't the case. Eric Mangini even said he would "be open" to having Tucker back "if things work out that way."

Though Browns OT Ryan Tucker admitted considering retirement, he says his mind is now on playing football.

Browns OT Ryan Tucker is contemplating retirement, according to the Northern Ohio News-Herald.

Tucker has battled hip and knee injuries of late and is reportedly wary of putting himself through the 16-game grind. He did indicate last month that he wants to play two more seasons, so we'd like to see confirmation of this report before placing too much stock in it.

Browns OT Ryan Tucker agreed to restructure his contract to stay in Cleveland.

Tucker was due to earn $3.25 million, but he will instead play for the NFL veteran minimum of $850,000. Injury prone throughout his career, Tucker battled both knee and hip issues last season. However, the 34-year-old remains arguably Cleveland's best run blocker when healthy.
