Horse Tracks: Broncos OL Tyler Polumbus retires

The back up Denver Broncos offensive lineman retires with a Super Bowl ring after eight years in the NFL.

Ron Chenoy-USA TODAY Sports

Happy Wednesday, Broncos Country.

After eight seasons in the NFL, back up Denver Broncos offensive lineman Tyler Polumbus has decided to call it a career.

The former University of Colorado standout signed with the Broncos as an undrafted free agent in 2008. Polumbus played for Denver from 2008-2010, then moved around the league and spent time with the Detroit Lions, Seattle Seahawks, Washington Redskins and Atlanta Falcons.

Halfway through last season, the Broncos brought Polumbus back in order to help bolster their offensive line play, in particular at right tackle where Michael Schofield struggled immensely during the season.

Over the course of his career Polumbus played in 116 games with 60 total starts. Now he rides off into the sunset after joining the team who took a chance on him all those years ago and in the end, retires a champion.  I don't think he could have asked for a better ending to his eight year career in the NFL.

A big Mile High Salute to Polumbus on a successful NFL career and on behalf of Mile High Report, here is to wishing you and yours all the bests in your endeavors after football.

As always, thanks for reading and here is today's offering of Horse Tracks.
