Tennessee Titans great and defensive lineman Jurrell Casey made his retirement official during a press conference at Nissan Stadium on Thursday, ending what was a sensational 10-year career in the NFL.
A third-round pick of the Titans in 2011, Casey’s mark on the franchise will live forever. Not only did he make a lasting impact on the field, his contributions off of it were equally impressive.
Over nine seasons in Tennessee, Casey became one of the best players at his position in the NFL. He got the nod for five Pro Bowls, was a multi-time defensive captain and a two-time Walter Payton Man of the Year nominee.
Casey’s 51 sacks ranks seventh in franchise history and second in the Titans era. When the Titans were going through their down years as a franchise, Casey was one of the few bright spots to speak of.
When we look back on his career, Casey will go down as one of the best players in franchise history. We have no doubt he’ll be inducted into the Ring of Honor at some point down the road.
Check out all of the highlights of what was a special day for No. 99, and the Titans as a whole, below.
