Chargers center Mike Pouncey is retiring from the NFL after 10 seasons. He and his twin brother Maurkice Pouncey announced their retirements together on Friday, via Ramon Foster.

Pouncey spent the last three years with the Chargers, though he missed the entire 2020 season due to a hip injury. He began his career with the Dolphins in 2011 when he was drafted in the first round, remaining in Miami for seven seasons.

Pouncey, 31, made the Pro Bowl as a member of the Chargers in 2018, the fourth time in his career he was selected. Injuries unfortunately limited him in the NFL, but he still played and started 114 games across 10 seasons.

In 2018, he signed a two-year contract with the Chargers after being released by the Dolphins. A year later, he re-upped with Los Angeles, signing a one-year extension for $8 million in September of 2019. Pouncey’s last game was in Week 5 of the 2019 season.
