Ali Marpet is coming off the best season of his career. He plans for it to be his last.
The Buccaneers guard announced via Instagram on Sunday that he is retiring. The 28-year-old Marpet was a Pro Bowler in 2021, his seventh season.
“After seven formidable years with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, I’ve come to the decision to retire from the game that has given me so much,” he posted. “This organization and the people surrounding it have helped not only fulfill a dream, but also helped build me into the person I am today. I’ve made Tampa Bay my home and I look forward to serving this community in the coming years. To the coaches and teammates, family and friends, an Instagram post simply can’t express the profound impact you’ve had on me. I’m eternally grateful. Thank you Tampa Bay.”
