Veteran center Max Unger is retiring after 10 seasons in the league, NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported Saturday. ESPN first reported the news.
Rapoport added that Unger is officially on the reserve/retired list, as of Saturday afternoon.
Unger had one year remaining on a three-year extension signed in 2016 and was owed $5.1 million in base salary this upcoming season.
Unger was a model of consistency in New Orleans, missing just one game and committing just four penalties in four years. The veteran was considered the 19th-ranked center in 2018, according to Pro Football Focus.
