SEATTLE - Seattle Seahawks veteran guard Mike Iupati plans to retire after 11 seasons in the NFL.
Iupati told The Spokesman-Review that his goal was to hit 10 years in the league. The 33-year-old spent the last two seasons in Seattle.
"I fell in love with Seattle," he says. "The organization was first class. They were so good to me."
The four-time Pro Bowler also played in San Francisco and Arizona. In college, he was an All-America offensive lineman for the Idaho Vandals.
"My body was telling me it was time to close the door," Iupati told The Spokesman.
