Wimbley says he's retiring from the NFL after nine seasons to spend more time with his family.
Wimbley announced his decision on his Twitter account Thursday, and Titans general manager Ruston Webster congratulated Wimbley on his career in a statement. The 6-foot-4, 258-pound Wimbley was a first-round draft pick by Cleveland in 2006 at No. 13 overall and played four seasons with the Browns before being traded to Oakland in 2010. Wimbley has 53 1/2 sacks in his career yet only 11 the past three seasons in Tennessee.
