Nine-time Pro Bowl selection and future Hall of Fame member Walter Jones has tentatively announced his retirement from football.

In a tweet from Sunday afternoon, Jones said, "I have came to the concussion it is time for me to retire from football." One can only assume that concussion was meant to say "conclusion," indicating Jones' conclusion that his football career has finished.

Jones, the Seattle Seahawks first-round draft choice in 1997, has anchored the Seahawks' offensive line for over a decade, leading the team to one Super Bowl in 2006. 

Jones' retirement would be the end of one of the greatest offensive lineman careers in NFL history.
